Compiz error: Software Rasterizer in use


Hey guys, I have a problem with compiz. I'm kinda pissed because I didn't have this problem under ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10, but now i have it with 9.04. Anyway, compiz will not work and here's what the compiz-check script comes up with:

Gathering information about your system...

Distribution: Ubuntu 9.04
Desktop environment: GNOME
Graphics chip: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
Driver in use: intel
Rendering method: AIGLX

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system...

Checking for texture_from_pixmap... [ OK ]
Checking for non power of two support... [ OK ]
Checking for composite extension... [ OK ]
Checking for FBConfig... [ OK ]
Checking for hardware/setup problems... [FAIL]

There has been (at least) one error detected with your setup:
Error: Software Rasterizer in use

Any ideas guys? And thanks for your guys time. You guys always beat ubuntuforums. They take forver to reply back!

same problem

I am searched for a solution to this issue. It seems on some laptops and graphics cards, most cases Intel chipsets. I read of a solution but it has not worked yet for me.

I'm looking at these sites for answers. WhatI have come up with isyou have to manually edit the xorg.conf file by doing this command:
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Narrowing it down to a resolution issue.
Let me know if you get it because I can't run compiz either.

I forgot to mention, this was under my PS3 running ubuntu. Under 7.10 I was able to run compiz, but Lord only knows what type of chipset is in the PS3, I think I just got lucky with 7.10. Anyway, when I get ubuntu on the X360 I will have to try it.

Back to your problem though. Compix running under XGL was the only way I got compiz running at all on my PS3. I have 9.04 running on my emachines, and compiz runs great. What distro and version are you on?
