    What's the error ? (terminal output)

    Have compiz-fusion installed (or hah had it installed ?) : what is the version of emerald ? (rpm -q emerald)

    Alternatively, try with another border decoration (aquamarine/kwin/...) from the beryl-icon.

    X Server error

    I follow your setup directions to a tee and after the reboot i get this error

    Failed to start the X Server. It is likely that it is not setup correctly. Would you like the X Server output to diagnose the problem?
    The log file looks as such: (it's long so I apologize in advance)

    There is no ATI driver for a xen kernel so you have to use a normal kernel to get the driver working.

    mplayer/xine/ffplay performance problems since upgrade

    Hi Leigh,
    I was very happy to stumble upon your excellent post, as I was having trouble getting my VisionTek X1550 to work on FC6, x86-64 with the latest ATI drivers. Going through the install worked fine and I made all the config tweaks you suggest (thank you!). GLXinfo looks good and I get 900FPS on glxgears:
    [sodo@ogre ~]# glxinfo | head -60
    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:
    GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating,
    GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_OML_swap_method,
    GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe,
    GLX_SGIX_swap_barrier, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer
    client glx vendor string: ATI
    client glx version string: 1.3
    client glx extensions:
    GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_EXT_import_context,
    GLX_ARB_get_proc_address, GLX_SGI_video_sync, GLX_ARB_multisample,
    GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float, GLX_ATI_render_texture
    GLX version: 1.2
    GLX extensions:
    GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_EXT_import_context,
    GLX_ARB_multisample
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Radeon X1300/X1550 Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6650 (8.39.4)

    But I seem to be experiencing the same issue as johnnylinux, where xine/mplayer/ffplay seem to be misbehaving (dropping frames (mplayer/ffplay) or crashing gnome (xine)). As you suggested to him, I have tried other video output options with mplayer with the same result. I am using this box as a video editing workstation, so I use these programs to test my edits. I have a dual, quad core xeon (dell sc1430). Previous to using the VisionTek card and the fglrx drivers, I was able to play these videos without problem on the mobo video (16MB ATI ES1000). Cinelerra, however, seems to be working well, as it takes advantage of my CPUs.

    I use the ATI Catalyst Control Center to change my display settings. I've tried the three different display modes with the same poor performance/crashing behavior each time. I've attached a snap of the Control Center info. card info from ATI control center

    Might you have seen this behavior before? Could it be degradation between 32-bit versus 64-bit modes? thanks for your time.

    I went ahead and tested removing the 32bit libraries from the install:
    yum remove xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit

    X still loads with my dual monitor setup; however, I still have my choppy video/hang/crash problem. I am running kernel-2.6.22-7 on fc6 x86_64:

    [sodo@ogre ~]# rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n"|grep kernel|sort
    kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.x86_64
    kernel-2.6.22.7-57.fc6.x86_64
    kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.x86_64

    I was so frustrated I decided to try out the new SuSe 10.3 and see if they offered another option.
    I had the exact same problem but luckily was able to resolve it (somewhat). Although the experience I document is with SuSe, there is enough information there that you can apply it to Fedora to address some issues you come across here if you get stuck.

    I've rolled back to driver version 8.35.5 and the choppy behavior is gone, but now I no longer have direct rendering enabled.
    - more to come

    I'm getting good at installing these ATI driver installs. >:[

    8.35.5:
    -mplayer works well in XV, but I have no OpenGL
    8.36.5
    -mplayer doesn't work well in XV, and the kernel module won't build, so I can't get OpenGL to work
    8.40.4
    -mplayer doesn't work well in XV, but works OK in OpenGL. Obviously, I got the kernel module to build for 8.40.4 by installing that driver and building and installing the kernel module using:
    ./ati-driver-installer-8.40.4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6
    rpm -ivh kernel-module-ATI-fglrx-2.6.22.7-57.fc6-8.40.4-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm

    I imagine this will suffice for now.

    ATI needs to get their act together.

    Thanks for the info, Leigh! It helped get me started..

    Try fglxinfo instead


    fglxinfo

    Could someone please give me a rundown on what is needed to get Compiz up and running on F8 (x86_64 7.92) under KDE? I can only find instructions for earlier versions, and it looks like the devel repo might be missing some packages to get things running in K.
