Now EXA gives fantastic performance, but I still get "Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work." when trying to start compiz.
What else am I missing?
You may try also try mesa git from PPA/~xorg-edgers repository, I have only provided as small as possible changes to stable mesa in my PPA/stikonas so that possibility of breaking smth will be much smaller.
and enabled Dri in xorg.conf?! if you didn't maybe, it's quite the chance that dri isn't enabled, but disabled by default. so you wouldn't be able to run compiz.
the above variable forces indirect rendering since for the moment it's the only one providing glx_ex_texture_from_pixmap necessary for copiz to run.
also you need to run compiz with
compiz --replace ccp
and then use emerald with
since kwindecorator doesn't work well (at least for me).
That's what I was missing - when I added it, compiz started perfectly. This is really fantastic
and is stable also in video playback and fast, even when going with 500+ mbs of ram occupied in compiling and the processor at 100% load. i'm really impressed how well compiz works on the radeon driver. the devs have really done a real good job.
ps. with dri2 and direct rendering this should be even more faster and good.
vtence - that sounds like the same steps I took. Maybe try making the changes to xorg.conf that are listed here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RS485 . I noticed a small performance boost after following those steps.
