    Default fglrx 8.42.3 - compiz fusion doesn't work :( !

    Hi everybody !

    I'm french and new here, please be indulgent because i dont speak english very well :S !

    I've a RADEON XPRESS 200G (PCIE integrated) and before this release of fglrx 8.42 i used XGL with Compiz Fusion under linux Fedora 7.
    XGL is very very slow and i waited this new release for erase compeletely XGL from my drive and play with compiz fusion or games (ut2004) !
    When i saw fglrx 8.42, i immediatly downloaded it and installing it with --buildpkg command.
    When restarting, i checked if fglrx has started and it has :

    [root@localhost Scias]# fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon Xpress Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release

    [root@localhost Scias]# glxinfo
    name of display: :0.0
    display: :0 screen: 0
    direct rendering: Yes
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    server glx version string: 1.2
    server glx extensions:
    ....
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon Xpress Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release
    OpenGL extensions:
    .....
    I tried a "glxgears" and it is very smoothly than the fglrx 8.40 :

    [root@localhost Scias]# glxgears
    3885 frames in 5.0 seconds = 976.899 FPS
    with fglrx 8.40, i was around 600 FPS.

    Then, i tried to launch "fusion-icon" but it's not working !!

    [root@localhost Scias]# fusion-icon

    I'm on Fedora 7 on kernel 2.6.22.9-91.fc7
    ATI XPRESS 200G
    Compiz Fusion 0.5.2
    OpenGL games like UT2004 work very smoothly !

    Can somebody help me please ?

    I have the same problem.

    I wondering if it's a missing dependency in fedora 7. I am toying with the idea of installing f8 on a diff. partition and seeing if I have any luck.

    it isn't an fedora specific problem because I've got the same problems on openSUSE 10.3

    Have you already whitelisted fglrx? (It solved one problem for me)

    I get this output while starting compiz:

    compiz: Trying '/usr/$LIB/libIndirectGL.so.1'
    compiz (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
    compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
    compiz (core) - Fatal: No maBernahrdnageable screens found on display :0.0

    the output of fgl_glxgears is the same for me (like yours)

    and amdccle doesn't work cause of a bug in java (as I have heard)

    I hope somebody is able to solve this problem

    Friendly greetings

    Bernhard

    what do you mean by "whitelisting fglrx"?

    if you start compiz-manager (it's named like this on opensuse 10.3) I've got an error message saying that the device isn't on the whitelist.

    Therefore I had to edit the /usr/bin/compiz-manager entry (and add the fglrx to the whitelist)

    # Driver whitelist
    WHITELIST="nvidia intel ati radeon i810 fglrx"

    I don't have this message of whitelist, and when i can't edit /usr/bin/compiz or /usr/bin/fusion-icon because they're binaries (there's not a linea comprehensible :S)....
    And there's not /usr/bin/compiz-manager.

    ...Maybe a broken dependencies ?

    Maybe, we (Fedora Users) should wait the fglrx 8.42 in livna repository ?....

    I don't know...

    I've reinstalled XGL for waiting. He's a very little faster with fglrx 8.42.

    I will try in Ubuntu.

    you should make sure that the old fglrx module is not loaded...

    in Ubuntu this is done by adding fglrx to your
    DISABLED_MODULES=""
    in
    /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common

    Hello,

    i install the last ATI driver with livna packages (8.42.3) on my HP DV5142 EU, video card : XPress 200M.
    => Fedora 7 x86_64, Kernel 2.6.22.9-91.fc7, fglrx 8.42.3 (by livna), compiz 0.3.6-8.fc7

    First, glxgears give FPS near 1600.
    Second, when i try to activate compiz, installed by default, i have the same error message :

    compiz (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
    compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
    compiz (core) - Fatal: No maBernahrdnageable screens found on display :0.0
