View Full Version : [ubuntu] No direct rendering with open-source driver and mobile FireGL v5200

July 26th, 2009, 08:19 PM
When I first upgraded to 9.04, this worked fine. For a while, I had switched to custom Xserver 1.5 packages and fglrx, but at the moment I want to switch back to the open source Radeon driver.

I ran a dist-upgrade last night and I'm back to the latest Jaunty packages for... everything. No matter what I do, I get no acceleration.

Solved: nvidia-glx-96 is installed by default to provide libGLcore, but it also diverts libglx, and xorg-video-radeon needs the Mesa version. Reinstalling libgl1-mesa-glx after nvidia-glx-96 is installed solved the problem.

Now if I could just figure out why enabling compositing draws almost everything upside-down....
