    Default Back to tearing my hair out.

    Okay, so! I finally managed to figure out installing the ATi drivers. Now, when I do glxinfo | grep direct it's still telling me:

    [m@localhost ~]$ glxinfo | grep direct
    Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
    direct rendering: No
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect

    Now this is where I start tearing my hair out - because the Livna drivers were giving me the same error, and I figured it was an unofficial driver bug.

    I really don't know what to do here - because to my knowledge using XGL requires that XFree thing :S.

    Can you post the output of:

    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE

    Add the following section to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:

    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
    	Option	    "Composite" "Disable"
    EndSection
