    Hello. Oibaf, awesome work on the ppa. Nothing but a smooth ride for the most part.
    However, yesterday compiz and 3d applications such as Left4Dead 2 native began failing after
    updating the drivers. The problem was solved by purging the ppa.

    On reboot, compiz and bfaedemon (or sth like that) would fail to start altogether until I purged ppa from
    the terminal.

    The hardware is ati radeon 5xxx. Let me know if there's something I can do to help further locate the problem.

    This also started happening to me after the latest update from the ppa. compiz crash and bamfdaemon crashed with signal 5 in _XReply() .
    So I did as arstyl and purged the ppa for now.

    My video card is HD5850.

    • I just pushed an update without curaga stats6 branch ( the only yesterday change), it will be ready in a hour.

      @curaga: do you have an idea on what's happening?

      • I'm afraid not, I haven't had any crashes, and it's valgrind clean. Anyone get a backtrace?

        • Thanks to Florian for sending a backtrace. Compiz was causing a vertex buffer to be NULL, even though the logic above should prevent it. Fixed in the latest commit.

          • We have independent confirmation that the crash is fixed.

            • Is the fix effective also on radeonsi?

              (BTW I found out why the clover/core dir was missing. In the case of no git merge I was copying the files with rsync -C, this option should avoid copying some cvs/git/... dir, however the manual page says it also excludes core items, so this legitimate dir was omitted.)

                The bug only affected r600g, si users weren't affected AFAIK.

                • OK, I enabled it again.

                  • Patches no longer apply after radeonsi cleanup. I see your stats7 branch, should I pull from there? It would be easier for me if you always keep the same branch and rebase when needed.

                    • I just pushed the new branch an hour ago, you're fast

                      According to Linus & other git pros, it's bad git hygiene to rebase a public branch?
