compiz fusion on F9

i just installed fedora 9.
it seems to support my hardware really well out of the box, specifically the wifi(even the light works).

i installed compiz-fusion according to this guide:

it isn't working.

direct rendering is apparently enabled, output from glxinfo:
Failed to initialize TTM buffer manager.  Falling back to classic.
direct rendering: Yes
glxgears operates properly.

when i start up fusion-icon, i get a completely white screen.
ive read that this can be worked around by using indirect rendering: fusion-icon -n. this produces the icon, but nothing happens - emerald themes isn't applied, and 3d effects dont work.

here is my xorg.conf:
# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
# keyboard added by rhpxl
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "gb"

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "intel"
	Option "DRI" "true"
	Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24

Section "Extensions"
	Option "Composite" "Enable"

Section "DRI"
	Group 0
	Mode 0666
thanks in advance for any help

EDIT: i have an intel GMA X3100 graphics card

Fedora 9 moved to the newest version of Xorg. It's possible that Intel doesn't have drivers that support it yet. The same thing happened with Nvidia drivers.
