Fedora 8 and compiz fusion....


Hi,
I've got a GeForce 8600M GT using latest 100.14.19 driver.

When I run compiz-manager from a consolle I see:
compiz-manager
Checking for Xgl: not present.
Detected PCI ID for VGA: 01:00.0 0300: 10de:0407 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
Checking for non power of two support: present.
Checking for Composite extension: present.
Comparing resolution (1280x800) to maximum 3D texture size (8192): Passed.
Checking for nVidia: present.
Checking for FBConfig: present.
Checking for Xgl: not present.
Starting kde-window-decorator

why xgl is not present? What does it means?

With nvidia card, perhaps you use aiglx? Does compiz work? Do you have 3D graphics OK? What is being loaded in /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

Could it be that you used the nvidia installer instead of yum?

I have options:
Code:
        Option          "AddARGBVisuals"        "True"
        Option          "AddARGBGLXVisuals"     "True"
        Option          "NoLogo"        "True"
... in the "device" section instead of "screen".

I insert this options in the device section.
Same problem.

thanks for your reply.
I have added this line:
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"

compiz fusion seems to work well but I have another problem.

When using kde if I switch to framebuffer usinf CTRL + ALT + F1
and then return to kde with ALT + F7 kde seems to crash.
I see only a black windows and I need to kill kde with CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE.

Can you help me please? This is very annoying...

Fedora has been a while for me now, but I thought ctrl-alt-F1 put you in tty1.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...screen-385376/

There has been a bug in Beryl Core that shows this behavior:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/fedora/+s...re/+bug/107034
... ended as "invalid" as Beryl got merged with compiz.

http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_XGL/Troubleshooting
... gentoo wiki has a neet page on GLX troubleshooting.

i.e. There is a bug in the later drivers for mobile nvidia that does this.
Otherwise, you need to look in the syslog (prev session) to see if compiz is reporting any errors.

Ruling out compiz leads us into KDE/X/nvidia territory. If you are using the binary nvidia driver, then all bets are off. Especially if you used nvidia's installer (which yau have yet to confirm). If you disable compiz and use the free driver, does the problem remain?

no, if I disable compiz all is ok.
is there a way to solve this problem?

I actually tried to remove compiz fusion and try beryl... but once i tried it, i realized it couldn't work. I'm kinda new, so spare no detail. How do i reinstall compiz onto my Fedora core 8 computer?

probably:

yum install compiz compiz-gnome compiz-fusion-plugins-extra

... it's official now, so you can probably just select the packages with pirut.

Do you use the livna repo? Did you install the kmod-nvidia driver? If yes, then

As root:

# livna-config-display

Tick Allow livna-config-display to edit configuration files
Choose AIGLX under Automatic Configuration.

I then used this guide to install compiz-fusion
