ATI livna drivers - help troubleshoot, please.


I'm trying to get compiz to work but am having problems with fglrx...

When I type
Code:
glxinfo | grep direct
I get the following

Code:
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect

Here's my kernel

Code:
kernel-2.6.20-1.2948.fc6.i686
kernel-devel-2.6.20-1.2948.fc6.i686
kernel-headers-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i386

And the results from
Code:
fglrxinfo
Code:
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)
And here's my xorg.conf

Code:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0

I had it working a while ago, spinning cube, wobbly windows on fire etc... But I have no idea how I managed to "fluke" it.

Thanks.

Personally, I prefer the ati-x11-drv from freshrpms along the dkms package from FC6 extras but that is besides the point*.

Your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file looks similar to mine (included for comparison), please check and see if you have the imlib rpm packages installed; rpm -qa 'imlib*'

Expected output for example;
$ rpm -qa 'imlib*'
imlib2-1.3.0-3.fc6
imlib-1.9.15-2.fc6

* I like the idea that when a new kernel is installed or upgraded I do not need to download and install new packages from linva, the ati-x11-drv automatically gets rebuilt for the new kernel at boot-time.

I know I don't have the imlib rpm packages installed.

I'm VERY new to Linux/Fedora so I'm not too sure where to get them. I'll search around to try and find out, but I'll probably be back here to ask where to install them from.

I downloaded and installed the ati-x11-drv-8.36.5-1.fc6.i386.rpm, and devel...

Is there anything else I have to do? Are the imlib rpm packages installed as dependencies?

Install the freshrpms-release rpm package as root type;
Code:
rpm -ivh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/6/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
When done do: yum install imlib imlib2 ati-x11-drv

You might want to uninstall the livna packages first, which can be done from the console or xterm session using yum or rpm;

Example: yum uninstall kmod-nvidia
Example: rpm -e kmod-nvidia* --allmatches
