    Beryl White Cube White Screen XGL whats up?

    I installed Compiz, works great with XGL. Installed Beryl and start it using beryl-xgl my screen goes white and i can rotate a white cube with the emerald logos on the the top and bottom of the cube, what is wrong? I have an ATI X1600 Mobility video card.

    Have you checked out the Beryl forums? there is a bunch of threads on this issue. But I was never able to fix it, I have an Nvidia card with the same symptoms so maybe you'll have better luck with ATI. If you are able to fix it please post what the solution was.

    I am going to try this, this seems promising:

    As wschutzer already has pointed out, the white cube on FC6 is caused by using the illawarra Xgl rpm which is built against older Mesa sources.
    But it's not that difficult to homebrew an FC6 RPM:

    - grab the SRPM from
    - one caveat: for that you need libxkbdui and libxkbdui-devel - as this is not included in FC6, grab it from an FC5 mirrot of your choice, such as here or here (64bit)
    - install the SRPM (and grab any dependencies with yum)
    - go to /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
    - do a "sudo rpmbuild -bb xorg-x11-server-Xgl.spec"
    - the RPM is now built - after build, it can be found in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

    This should be all 138
