    check to make sure direct rendering is enabled.

    glxinfo |grep direct

    if not, unset LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT.

      Thanks for the quick reply!

      glxinfo says "direct rendering: yes"

      Like people from some previous posts I also cannot launch amdcccle any more: "Segmentation fault".

      3D performance is good, though: > 600 FPS in glxgears (> 1000 without compiz), smooth Google Earth (if I disable the 3D desktop with "metacity --replace" to avoid flickering).

      Suggestions anyone?

        Anyways, neat comparison with the composite support, it looks so much better now.
        Not sure if they do this still, but http://shop.ati.com/tradeup.asp might be useful to you.

          Nope. And I don't think VSync has anything to do with window resizing or even composite in general.

            On my side version 9.3 works almost same as the previous one. I'm not using Compiz, so I don't worrie about Composite. But I'm still getting video tearings. The only solution that I found was to enable vsync to always on in AMDCCCLE. It works fine when enabled, but with higher bitrate it slowing down my videos in XBMC , got frame drop.
            Is someone has an idea how to rid tearings without using vsync ?

              FYI: A Fedora 10 package of 9.3 made it's way into the rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing repository yesterday.

                For anyone who is *not* seeing OpenGL output composited, can you please reply back to the list with some info about your graphics chip/card/bus ?

                  fgl_glxgears crashes my system with no error message, just black screen and im forced to do a hard restart. glxgears works but output is not composited. Video playback with VideoOverlay on and opengloverlay off is black, and obviously not composited. This really sucks since this is the last proprietary driver for my card, and it doesn't even work correctly. Guess ill keep my eyes peeled for dri2 and gallium3d in the open source driver.
                  Exactly the same issues here on my 9600 XT

                        When will you learn? Why do you think suddenly they will release a driver and 'fix every thing'?

                        Please, for god's sake, get rid of your cards and switch to something works, or just wait for a year till OSS catches up.

                            I was about to commend FunkyRider for saying what needs to be said, but then I saw charlie's response and was just stunned to see someone take the time to write that here.

                            btw charlie, who is to say FunkyRider is christian and believes in your god, and not just using a very common expression?

                              This release hard-locks my system when X starts up. All I see is a black screen with a frozen waiting cursor in the center.
                              This is a plain 64bit openSUSE 11.1 kernel with a 4850 card and an AMD Phenom X4 processor. Any ideas on what I can do? The 9.2 release worked fine.

                                I have exactly the same issue on a 32bit Fedora 10, Intel Core Duo 2 and a 3xxx card.
                                I have a custom kernel so I cannot (easily) use the RPMFusion fglrx packageds.
                                I did look at their source RPM and applied the same fixes. That worked fine for 9.2, but with 9.3 I get exactly the problem described above.
