I posted my thread on archlinux forums (my distro) but alas no response, so i'm hoping if anyone else could help me? I'm currently running 2.6.29 kernel with catalyst 9.4, sure enough it "works" as in I have X+DE (kde4= up and running but compiz runs like shit. Basically I wan't most of the plugins/3D in compiz to work, like wobbly windows, but everytime i try one, all the windows/borders goes static.

Should I downgrade my catalyst or try xf86-video-radeonhd (im currently at work) ?

Trust me if I could rip out my "lovely" ATI from my sony vaio, I would trust me and go with nvidia instead.


Here's my problem after a few hours of fiddling I at least managed to get compiz up and running with a few plugins, but wobbly windows/alt tab/moving windows (very important to me) does not work at all. Everytime I execute any command on the wiki that's related to emerald/fusion icon/kde etc all my windows goes into some sort of static mode, can't move them around, can't do anything at all unless I execute: kwin --replace.

my dmesg log is full of this crap:

Code:
 data!!! vma_start:0x7fef335b6000,handle:0xc5e76000
[fglrx:firegl_find_any_map] *ERROR* Invalid map handle!<3>[fglrx:drm_vm_open] *ERROR* map not found -> inconsistent kernel data!!! vma_start:0x7fef339ea000,handle:0xc29ec000
(won't paste the entire content in here) check out my paste if you wish: EDIT: I can't paste all those lines WOW! "time out while sending data" just imagine i have 800 lines of the same crap

Anyone running ati open source drivers with compiz/3d effects without issues?
