Compiz on Mandriva Intel Mobile GM965/GL960 (rev 03)

I have Acer Emachines e510 laptop.
OS: Mandriva PowerPack 2008. Kernel 2.6.22
Video card: Intel Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

[sergy@localhost ~]$ compiz
compiz (core) - Error: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a window manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current window manager.
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

[sergy@localhost ~]$ glxinfo | grep -i direct
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)

When launching 'compiz --replace' machine hangs with no window manager (without window decoration).

If you know how to launch compiz PLS write it in your answer.

Until you get the message "direct rendering: Yes" by issuing the command "glxinfo | grep -i direct", you won't be able to start compiz.

Mine with same card:

$ glxinfo | grep -i direct
direct rendering: Yes

- Google for i965 & direct rendering. You'll need something like this in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf :

Section "Module"
Load "dri"
Load "glx"

Section "ServerLayout"
Option "AIGLX" "true"

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
Option "RENDER" "Enable"
