    Any clue which options I should activate in my "Xorg.conf" config file in order to enable Compiz via AIGLX? When running
    compiz.real --indirect-rendering --replace I'm getting a message telling me that the composite extension is not enabled on my system.

    Also, when I installed it (on Gutsy), it seems the package did not create a necessary symbolic link (ie. in /usr/lib libGL.so.1 was not found, but libGL.so.1.2 was, so I created a symbolic pointing from libGL.so.1 to libGL.so.1.2 and it did the trick).
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    in the section "Extensions" set Composite to yes, or remove the entire section entirely.

    Restart X. (ctrl+alt+backspace)

    EDIT: Haha, you beat me to it -_-
    Hope it works for you ^^;

      I have a X800 XT. The only thing I did in my xorg.conf was switching from ati to fglrx.

      Code:
      # xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
      #
      # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
      # values from the debconf database.
      #
      # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
      # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
      #
      # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
      # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
      # package.
      #
      # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
      # again, run the following command:
      #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

          I can't run compiz
          mikko@gentoo ~ $ compiz --replace
          compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
          compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
          compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0
          I enabled "composite" and AIGLX in xorg.conf.

          DRI is enabled too:
          mikko@gentoo ~ $ fglrxinfo
          display: :0.0 screen: 0
          OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
          OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
          OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release
          I tried following this howto (I run Gentoo amd64): http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_XGL/Tro...map_is_missing

          LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib compiz --replace gconf &

          LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/libGL.so compiz --replace gconf
          both give me the same output...

          What am I missing?

            Hi,
            the new driver is great, but I don't seem to have X-Video support. Is there any way to enable it?

            Code:
            $ xvinfo 
            X-Video Extension version 2.2
            screen #0
             no adaptors present
            Code:
            $ fglrxinfo 
            display: :0.0  screen: 0
            OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
            OpenGL renderer string: ATI MOBILITY RADEON X700
            OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.0.6958 Release)
            Distribution is Ubuntu 7.10.

              You didn't follow all of the guide it seems. Did you look for where the mesa files are? Once you do:

              LD_LIBRARY_PATH=[path to mesa goes here] compiz --replace gconf &

              Or so it seems. Try that out.

              Code:
              sudo aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv
              Then restart X and see if that works.

                You need to enable Option "TexturedVideo" "True" for X-Video

                  I get the same error as SteviOS(fglrxinfo reports Mesa)
                  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)

                  Code:
                  [ahmad@localhost Desktop]$ ./ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Mandriva/2008
                  Created directory fglrx-install.Yy8033
                  Verifying archive integrity... All good.

                    Okay so after a lot of use, I can report essentially no problems...except one.

                    - glxgears tends to flicker a bit. Whether this applies to games I don't know as I don't have et:qw on hand to try (and I'm at work).

                    Anyone else have that problem?
                    ...and glxgears runs at 2250 FPS roughly on an ati x1400. 800ish FPS on powersaving mode.
