Question Compiz on Xgl with fglrx - segmentation fault (Slackware 12)


Hi.

I've got an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 video card,
with fglrx drivers installed.
I can run Xgl on it just fine. After running Xgl, I can run glxgears on that display without a problem.

However, when I try to run Compiz (0.5 or 0.4) on Xgl, I get 'GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing' message. Google says that it's normal with the fglrx drivers, and suggest that I preload the Mesa library libGL.so.1.2 when starting Compiz.

The problem is, when I do that, Compiz immediately gives me a "Segmentation Fault" error. I've tried that with different versions of the library (including Mesa 6.5 and 7.0) in various locations throughout my file system, without any luck. Compiling my own version of the library didn't help either.

Any ideas what could be the problem, and if it can be solved at all?

If you could give me any hints at all, I'd very much appreciate it, as I want to see the cube spinning already

Here's the output from fglrxinfo without and with Xgl running:
