  • fglrx, xgl, compiz.

    I am still trying to use compiz/beryl with my ATI 9200 card, fgrlx driver 8.28.8 and xgl, but it is not easy.
    I am starting xgl with
    /usr/bin/startxgl.sh:
    Xgl :1 -fullscreen -ac -accel xvbuffer -fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc -accel glxbuffer &
    DISPLAY=:1
    sleep 3
    compiz --replace gconf cube rotate scale fade minimize zoom place move wobbly &
    sleep 3
    gtk-window-decorator --replace &
    exec gnome-session

    and xgl is starting, and a gnome session is starting. But when I try to start beryl I get:
    XGL Present
    beryl: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
    beryl: Failed to manage screen: 0
    beryl: No manageable screens found on display :1.0
    I have tried to add these lines in my startxgl.sh:
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    but of no use.

    Do I have to drop xgl and go for AIGXL?

    you can drop XGL and go for AIGLX. With the Radeon 9200 you can use the open-source drivers. Should work in no time.

      When trying to start compiz or Beryl everything is freezing totally, and I have to restart my PC with the button.

      cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
      (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
      (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
      (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/r200_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/r200_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
      (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
      (EE) Error loading keymap /var/lib/xkb/server-0.xkm

      Am I using the wrong driver (ati)?

          I have uninstalled the fglrx driver; using ati and have changed to "radeon" in xorg.conf.
          But I still cannot start beryl properly, but gets a white screen after some second.

          I find here http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-b...msg156182.html
          r200_dri is the correct driver. The radeon one is for older cards.

          Is there a special radeon driver, and where can I get it?
          I have no r200_dri.so; locate r200_dri.so gives nothing.

            The Radeon driver may have gotten messed up from the fglrx drivers. Try reinstalling the Fedora RPMs for xorg.

              Thank you for help, but I found the r200_dr.so in the libgli-mesa-dri package - at last.
              I had some problems with this package and the libgli-mesa-glx package; there is a conflict between liggli-mesa-glx and libgl1, libgl1-mesa-dri (<< 6.4.0), but I have libgli-mesa-dri 6.5.1+cvs20060824, and though it seems not possible to install both. At least the last time I tried.
              I shall try first without this libgli-mesa-glx.
