If you're having problems with GL or Compiz in Fedora then this may help!


I am not sure if this will help you necessarily but this helped me a ton.

First read this forum for information's sake

http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho....php?p=1522683

Or see below to zoom right to the relevant issues.

If you find that GL is not working, as in the "glxinfo" command returns a nasty error, you may need to do the steps outlined by the very wise Mr. Leigh123linux in this link, starting from post 1833:

http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...postcount=1833

After that, do this:
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...postcount=1846

^^^ That got my GL stuff working again. If your GL isn't working it may help you, too. The key is to get X to load nvidia's GL, as in:

Code:
Section "Files"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
Be sure to add that last line, into your /etc/X11/xorg.conf wherever your Section "Files" is at.

Test this by running the glxinfo command; it should spit out a ton of info instead of a few lines of errors.


Then do this:
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...postcount=1848

And ultimately this:
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...postcount=1852

That got Compiz working for me. I am not sure if it will help anyone else but posting this is worth the try!

Thanks for posting this.

You may want to go to Thread Tools and mark this as solved as it helps find it more quickly when people do web searches.

Oh hey I didn't know the solved thing works like that. I do hope this does actually solve some people's problems with GL and Compiz!
