    I don't know if it helps, but it seems as if though disabling compatibility checks under the desktop config section not only gave me blur when everyone was crying that it didn't work with FLOSS (on Fedora with a HD5770 and HD5470), but everything went crash-free fast.

    Did you try that?

      Hm, so Mesa Git master (which I'm using) does not provide ES for r600g?

        @RealNC: I tried KWin with OpenGL2 on Kubuntu 11.10/r600g/mesa 7.11 and it works fairly well with a RadeonHD 4550/RV710. It should be smoother on 4870. I have no idea what you're doing wrong :\

          It does, but you will need the set the appropriate USE flag when emerging it.

            Rant subject change

            Nepomuk/Strigi - i'm curious - when will be usable? Here's simple test and big fail (again).

              Depends on whether you build it with GL ES 2.0 enabled. I think default turns it off.

                You are either lying or just lying and trolling. I am using Gentoo with mesa libdrm and xf86-video-ati from git, kernel 3.0 and kwin compiled for opengl es (it can only be compiled for either one of them). And it works just fine and it's even faster a bit. Also consider i have crappy entry HD5450.

                You need to do couple of things to achieve kwin running on opengl es
                1. Compile mesa with gallium (and switch to it or compile it with gallium only)
                2. Compile KWIN with OpenGL ES
                3. You may have to set environment variable EGL_PLATFORM=x11 (that's just me but it may be necessary )

                  The same here in Archlinux x64 with packages from testing repo. KDE 4.7 is way faster and this is with
                  Code:
                  echo low > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile
                  (the free radeon driver doesn't have proper power management and the card gets too hot with the default profile)

                  KDE 4.6.x was barely usable with low in power_profile.

                    I read some distros produce both kwin and kwin_gles for people to choose. The good thing is that 4.8 will choose OpenGL ES at runtime.

                        Of course I enabled it. Would be stupid otherwise.

                          Leave britney alone

                          I'm another gentoo user. I'll be emerging when I get home from work (so I don't possibly leave my poor wife with an broken system).
                          Hopefully I can contribute meaningfully to the discussion.

                          But for now I just want to say:

                          LEAVE realNC ALONE!!!!

                          OTOH, with all these different packages compiling from git, its no surprise if one of them spontaneously combusts

                              Theres a new OGL2 renderer and an OGLES renderer correct?
                              Is there an advantage to use OGLES over OGL2? Aren't they the same thing except one is for mobiles?

                                Fantastic!

                                I've compiled kde-workspace with Open GL ES on ("-DWITH_OpenGLES=ON -DKWIN_BUILD_WITH_OPENGLES=ON"), and I'm simply stunned by the speed of kwin! It works fantastic!





                                Kudos to everybody involved in this work!
