Hi,

Having installed Fedora at the weekend I had everything working, including compiz fusion. However since updating my system, compiz no longer works and I have the following result:
glxinfo | grep -i direct
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)


my xorg.conf looks like:
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# keyboard added by rhpxl
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "intel"
Option "Legacy3D" "true"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
Option "DRI" "true"
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "dri"
Load "glx"
Load "dbe"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Group "video"
Mode 0660
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection


I have an intel onboard graphics controller. How do I get 3D rendering back?

Thanks in advance

I just recently had a thread related to this topic:
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=201392

However, I'm not sure if you get direct render = YES as root. Maybe try that. "sudo glxinfo | grep direct". If that's the case, my solution should work for you.

My solution was:

1) I switched the modprobe.d/nvidia file to the following to reflect this:
ptions nvidia NVreg_DeviceFileMode=0660 NVreg_DeviceFileUID=0 NVreg_DeviceFileGID=500 NVreg_ModifyDeviceFiles=1

(500 = my group id)

chgrp'd to "users" /dev/nv*

crw------- 1 root users 195, 0 2008-07-31 06:31 /dev/nvidia0
crw------- 1 root users 195, 1 2008-07-31 06:31 /dev/nvidia1
crw------- 1 root users 195, 2 2008-07-31 06:31 /dev/nvidia2
crw------- 1 root users 195, 3 2008-07-31 06:31 /dev/nvidia3
crw------- 1 root users 195, 255 2008-07-31 06:31 /dev/nvidiactl
crw-rw---- 1 root root 10, 144 2008-10-09 10:31 /dev/nvram

Then I rebooted

Regrettably, g8keepR, I don't think your solution for NVidia will be of help with an Intel graphics chipset.

Thanks for your reply.

It's F9
It was the first post-install general update

Oh, boy! This looks disturbingly familiar. Quite frankly, I'm not up to a repeat performance. Please search recent posts for my username and keywords: "intel driver". See what hits come up - we just went through this within the last week, and IIRC the OP ended up downgrading to F8 X11/Xorg. But I would recommend trying the other solutions first.

If you can't find the thread, or have additional questions or problems, feel free to post back here, or there.

P.S. I think this is it: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=197045&highlight=intel+driver

P.P.S. As in the other thread, your Xorg.0.log file looks pretty clean and shows no sign that anything is amiss. :(
