        Oh can some one help me out and tell me where the file to weight list the driver for compiz is, please
        Well make sure everything is proper by running glxinfo and glxgears. (and make sure you don't have Mesa running by accident).

        As for gutsy, I haven't tested it, though I will in the next couple days.
        EDIT: If you have the Composite extension disabled in your xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, make sure you re-enable it.

        EDIT2: Compiz is now successfully running without a hitch. AIGLX is here to stay, and it's stable on my setup. The only thing I need to fix is my conky window which is now out of alignment for some odd reason. Nothing a little config file tweaking can't fix.

          8.42.3 Tested on Slackware 12 + Compiz Fusion + Radeon 9600.

          1) AIGLX is a TOTAL DELUSION. The fps is less than XGL. Firefox scrolling seems like a 286 dir command (on dos).
          Radeon open source driver is better!

          2) Xmame in opengl mode is worst than with radeon open source driver.

          Why did we wait for so much time?
          Why did we believe to ATI?
          Why -I- bought an ATI card?

              Well, package building fails on x86_64 Ubuntu Gutsy.

              Generating package: Ubuntu/gutsy
              Package build failed!
              Package build utility output:
              ...
              find: usr/X11R6/lib: No such file or directory
              ...
              cp: cannot stat `./usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri': No such file or directory
              dh_install: command returned error code 256
              make: *** [binary] Error 1

              Seems to be missing the usr/X11R6/lib directory; there's only a usr/X11R6/lib64 directory. Anyone get this thing to build on an x86_64 system under Gutsy?

                I need some help with Compiz.
                I installed the new driver with
                Code:
                sudo ./ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run
                Then added (compiz)
                Code:
                # Driver whitelist
                WHITELIST="fglrx nvidia intel ati radeon i810"
                and (xorg.conf)
                Code:
                Section "Module"
                	Load		"glx"
                EndSection
                
                Section "Extensions"
                	Option "Composite" "1"
                EndSection
                
                Section "ServerFlags"
                	Option "AIGLX" "on"
                EndSection
                I'm running Gutsy with ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. When I try to enable Compiz there's a white-screen.
                Code:
                 fglrxinfo
                display: :0.0  screen: 0
                OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
                OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
                OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)

                  I take it you're using Ubuntu? use --buildpkg Ubuntu/7.10 and not running the driver from its GUI installer.

                  Make sure to block fglrx in the restricted drivers too.

                    That's a known issue on the part of the package maintainer for Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon. A new packaging script for Ubuntu is available and I'll see if I still have it in my inbox.

                      Buildpkg worked fine on my 32bit system. I haven't tested the driver yet because I am at school.
                      I used ssh to do buildpkg and install.

                        Installation worked flawless for me on Ubuntu Gutsy. Whitelisted fglrx in /usr/bin/compiz on line 54 (someone asked how to do it previously).

                        Performance is not really good. Worse than the opensource ati driver (like kirý said). Did I miss enabling some options in xorg.conf?

                        Greetings...

                          What hardware are you using? What's your xorg.conf look like?

                            * Installing fglrx module
                            * ati tree 'lib' -> 'lib32' on system

                            arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            now no apps are starting because of the libgl.s0.1.2 not being there... how could i fix this?! if i cannot fix it i cannot use the driver...
                            for me the driver can be called 8.42.3 the baby is born... dead!!!!!!!!!

                              EndSection
                              I'm running Gutsy with ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. When I try to enable Compiz there's a white-screen.
                              Code:
                               fglrxinfo
                              display: :0.0  screen: 0
                              OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
                              OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
                              OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)
                              You've got Mesa there instead of ATI. You should be getting something similar to this:

                              Code:
                              display: 0:0 screen: 0
                              OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technolgies Inc.
                              OpenGL rendered string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
                              OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 release
                              Try installing it manually via method 2 found here:
                              (uninstall all previous instances of fglrx first, but don't reboot till you finish the manual install)

                                What kills me is that compiz-fusion is running at a usable speed -- just completely graphically corrupted.

                                Oh yeah, and et:qw crashed the X server after about 20 seconds into the game.

                                Wish I was more impressed, but...
