Yes the xorg.conf edit is the same. ( I have heard that the 8.36 driver has issues in FC7 . The livna driver should be updated to 8.37 in a day or two )

Yep, the 8.36 driver doesn`t work with the default kernel of FC7, waiting for 8.37 to come.

Cool Help w/ XGL et FC6

So, I followed all of the instructions and can't seem to get anything to work correctly for me...

I have the fglrx driver running properly as noted by the output:
Quote:
glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
All of my startup scripts are in-place and ready to roll, i.e. I have a gdm entry that points to /usr/bin/startXgl and that file is as such:
Quote:
#!/bin/sh
#
# 19/02/07
# nicofo - http://nicofo.tuxfamily.org
#

# 1) Start Xgl
#XGL_OPT will be overwritten by 'configureXgl'
#ex pour une ATI : XGL_OPT=":1 -fullscreen -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv:pbuffer -ac"
XGL_OPT=":1 -fullscreen -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv:pbuffer -ac"
/usr/bin/Xgl $XGL_OPT &
#sleep 2
DISPLAY=:1

# 2) Start Gnome or KDE or xfce
case "$1" in
--kde)
exec startkde;;
--xfce)
exec xfce4-session;;
*)
cookie="$(xauth -i nextract - :0 | cut -d ' ' -f 9)"
xauth -i add :1 . "$cookie"
exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session;;
#exec gnome-session;;
esac
That said and everything installed and leaving the gdm default.conf with 0=Standard and trying to open a gnome+Xgl session I get a Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found and dumped back to gdm where I am able to logon to standard gnome with not Xgl.

Second I try setting to 1=Standard in my default.conf...the session gnome+Xgl loads..but I beleive that Xgl is not loaded as evidenced by the output from glxinfo:

I have been messing with this for two days now...works fine on my Debian system but for the life of me I can't make it work on FC6

For fun, here is my xorg.conf

try deleting this as it will conflict with XGL

Quote:
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "on"
Restart X

And see if it works if not post the output from these commands

Quote:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
Quote:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep WW

No joy removing that option from my xorg.conf, still just dumps me back to gdm with the error Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found
GTK Unable to Open Display (or something similar)

output for WW is as follows: Note, no entries for EE
Quote:
(WW) The core pointer device wasn't specified explicitly in the layout.
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
(WW) fglrx(0): MonitorLayout is no longer supported.
(WW) LoadModule: given non-canonical module name "glesx.so"
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "IgnoreEDID" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "NoTV" is not used
(WW) <default pointer>: No Device specified, looking for one...
I am going to try to set my 1= rather than 0=

just to make sure...I don't need to add the Xgl server in my /etc/gdm/custom.conf as long as I am calling it through the gdm menu, correct?

No additional editing is needed as the script does this all .

Hello,
I have updated my scripts for the installation of XGL: it now installs the very last version of XGL for FC6.
You can try it.
Rem: the installation script is being translated=> some parts are still in French, but the programs are in English.

It's done, the script is available in English:Rem: the new script for FC6 installs the latest version of XGL and is compatible with the official versions of Compiz and Beryl. Beryl is now a lot more stable than before !
Rem2: the script for FC5 works also for FC6 (but uses old packages of XGL and Compiz)
Rem3: I have not yet tested the scripts with FC7, but I guess the version FC6 should work. Can you give me your feedback ? Thanks

Hi nicofo,

Thanks again for your new scripts.
I think feedback on XGL on FC7 will be delayed due to no working fglrx driver for FC7 , hopefully ATI will rectify this problem quickly.
