Unfortunately i cannot also enable compositing via Xrender.
When i run systemsettings via konsole, i get warning when im entering compositing settings:
Code:unknown chip id 0x9589, can't guess.
I've installed xf-video-ati-git, but something bad happened.
Now i have
in logs.Code:└─[$]> cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE Current Operating System: Linux dinth-archlinux 2.6.29-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed May 20 07:06:02 UTC 2009 i686 (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown. (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER (EE) Failed to load module "freetype" (module does not exist, 0) (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/r600_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/r600_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory) (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
That's to be expected, it doesn't have a Mesa driver yet. Ignore that, please.
Yep, that's a Good Error (for today, anyways )
But unfortunately desktop effects still cannot be enabled. This time without even warning.
Please tell my what information should i provide.
Were you able to go into the "Advanced" screen and select XRender ?
I think the sequence is "click on Enable Effects => click on Advanced => choose XRender" or something like that...
EDIT - found some instructions that might help :
When compiling mesa, you can specify r600
But, the package that I get sticks r600 in /usr/lib/dri. So you can put a link to /usr/lib/dri in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri.
But then I still get dri disabled. I imagine the software is just not ready yet or I'm goofing it up. This for a HD3200. Your results may differ.
