    why do you need fglrx for aiglx on your old hardware? thats not needed at all to have aiglx.
    the opensource drivers have aiglx but on some boards don't support compiz/beryl and are slower in performance than than the last 2 releases of fglrx.

      ignoreabi and aiglx are needed to run fglrx and 3d desktop on 1.3 and later.
      I have working AIGLX on xorg-server-1.3 with latest compiz but as I said xorg-server-1.4 + AIGLX = no chance

        hey!!
        i got i finally working! very nice!
        i'd say compiz runs smoothe, but there are some things that doesn't work... i can't watch videos or dvb while compiz is running, there a very strange distortions in the picture (i use kaffeine and vdr with xineliboutput)
        another problem is that resizing windows takes nearly 100% cpu usage, that sucks much.
        one more: scrolling is slow.. i use konqueror, but it's far away from being smoothe

        so my questions are:
        how can i get working video playback?
        and:
        which options should i use in my xorg.conf?
        i tried a few, compiz was always running right, but i hope there are some options to improve the performance a bit

        here my xorg.conf (important parts):

        Section "Module"
        Load "dbe"
        SubSection "extmod"
        Option "omit xfree86-dga"
        EndSubSection
        # Load "type1"
        Load "freetype"
        # Load "xtt"
        # Load "glx"
        Load "dri"
        EndSection


        Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "on"
        Option "IgnoreABI" "on"
        Option "AIGLX" "on"
        EndSection


        Section "Device"
        Identifier "Device0"
        Driver "fglrx"
        # Option "DRI" "true"
        Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
        # Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
        # Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
        # Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
        Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
        Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
        # Option "TexturedVideo" "True"
        Option "backingstore" "true"
        Option "UseFastTLS" "2"
        Option "BusType" "AGP"
        Option "AGPMode" "8"
        Option "EnablePageFlip" "1"
        EndSection


        Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier "Simple Layout"

        Screen "Screen 1"

        InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
        Option "AIGLX" "true"
        EndSection


        Section "DRI"
        Group 0
        Mode 0666
        EndSection


        Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "Enable"
        EndSection




        EDIT: a few seconds ago i tried to run glxgears, yes, of course it ran, but it had also these distortions (something like flickering)...

          manually set the output method to xv.

          Option "UseFastTLS" "2"
          this should be 0. else it could give you problems with some apps.

          # Load "glx"
          this shoudl be uncommented since should be loaded.

          remove this:
          Option "EnablePageFlip" "1"
          could give problems with video playing.

          set this
          Option "backingstore" "true"
          to false or off.

          add "Damage" "true"in the extension section.
          and this in the device section:

          Option "HWCursor" "On"

              hmm, give it a try. i don't know what it does, but it may be the case. i don't have these problems on beryl.
              i don't use compiz since is tooo slooow and tends to be unsable on my x200
