    I used the GUI installation for the driver.

    So I tried what Michael mentioned(using the package builder), and here is what I get: ( I'm on Mandriva2008)
    Try moving the file into your home directory or something and then try it. It seems like it can't find the file when trying to generate the distro specific package.

    Slacker: try using /usr/lib32 as your path and see if something comes out of that.

          slacker try running this

          Code:
          compiz.real --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --indirect-rendering
          this is the command that my 'fusion-icon' program decided to run for me, I had the same error that you are experiencing.

          running this sorted it

              Btw, is this good?

                fwiw -- I also had a case of the white screen issue upon first try.

                I checked /var/log/Xorg.0.log, and found that AIGLX was trying to initialize an old copy of fglrx_dri.so, which was located in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so

                I copied the new version (which the ati installed installed in /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so) over the one in the old location, and now compiz starts up with no white screen.

                I noticed that scrolling in firefox and my terminal are both pretty slow, but cube spinning performance is lightning quick. Anyone else experience slow scrolling?

                  Unfortunately I got the same problem when enabling AIGLX on Ubuntu 7.10 on a laptop containing a x1600 Mobility Radeon (GLX_ext_texture_from_pixmap extension missing).

                  Output is :
                  julien@julien-a100:~$ compiz.real --indirect-rendering --replace
                  compiz.real (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
                  compiz.real (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
                  compiz.real (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

                  Any clue? The LD_PRELOAD trick does not seems to work either, and seems related to XGL...

                  EDIT: my xorg.conf file lists GLX_ext_texture_from_pixmap as an available extension.

                    I think I know why now...under 64 bit, the lib directory is instead either lib32 or lib64 perhaps.

                    ...maybe that's the reason?

                      tried without "real" too: same error

                      Anyone else on gentoo amd64 managed to do this?
                      Maybe I just forgot something...

                        For those with Ubuntu 64-bit problems, below is a link to the updated Ubuntu packaging scripts done by Aric Cyr, which will be found in fglrx 8.43 (along with other updates I imagine). It fixes the 64-bit problem.

                            Sadly, that's not working too.

                            Code:

                              Try just compiz --replace and see where that gets you.
