I tried to run compiz on a fresh install of slackware 12.0.
My graphic card is an Ati X700.
By now I'm using the open 'radeon' driver (included in xorg) so of course I'm working only xorg.conf without installing/modifying other stuff.
I've enabled DRI and composite, all seems working (glxinfo reports dri and opengl enabled, glxgears reports about 2500 fps).
But when I try to launch compiz I always get this error message
compiz: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No managable screens found on display localhost:2.0
I searched on google and I've always found the same solution: to use indirect rendering (via software, not via hardware).
This seems to be the unique solution for both open radeon driver and closed fglrx.
So, there's no way to use compiz WITHOUT using indirect rendering??
Thanks in advance for any help.
