    xf86-video-intel 2.9.1 Driver is available is this the one included in 9.10 ??

    I can enable Extra Effects then as soon as I move a window it freezes.

    I have to do a hard reboot and carefully change it back to NONE to use the system.

    I used Compiz-Check is a script and got the following info.

    Gathering information about your system...

    Distribution: Ubuntu 9.10
    Desktop environment: GNOME
    Graphics chip: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ 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... [ OK ]


    So I should be able to run compiz fine.

    Plus one for problems with Karmic and the Intel display driver (on my laptop - don't have details of the driver version to hand at the mo)

    I was just setting up Compiz, things were working OK, but then all I did was enable the "Reflection" plugin and the whole thing locked up. Had to do a hard reboot... now I can't even load the full desktop without it hard locking again. I've tried dropping down to a console and uninstalling (and later reinstalling) compiz etc, but no joy, my whole system appears to be completely b*ggered


    EDIT: My tech details - Intel Corporation Mobile GME965/GLE960 Integrated graphics, i915 driver

    1+ in the Intel graphics driver problem. Card: Intel GMA 3100.

    Compositing works with the default drivers, but is very slow (slow as in "running around Dalaran with 512mb ram" in WoW-speak).

    Is there a fix out there, or is it possible to downgrade to 2.4 in karmic somehow?

    there is a way to donwgrade to xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.4 ( https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReinhardTart...telDriverTo2.4 )but it wont help, you get a white screen after enabling compiz.

    The system doesn't just completely hang. You can still use alt+print screen+"R" and then alt+print screen+"E" to recover keyboard control, then switch to another console with crt+alt+f1, login and reboot sytem.
    Just restarting gdm won't do.

    all flavours of xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.7 to 2.9 end up freezing the system after some time (less than a minute usualy) once compiz is enabled.

    the best way to test this is by enabling compiz with "compiz --replace &" from gnome-terminal. The system will hang once compiz kicks in (at least this way it won't hang seconds after reboot).

    I have same problem.
    When my Intel X3100 lock up (Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R), dmesg shows

    render error detected, EIR: 0x00000010
    [ 506.887756] page table error
    [ 506.887758] PGTBL_ER: 0x00100000
    [ 506.887761] [drm:i915_handle_error] *ERROR* EIR stuck: 0x00000010, masking
    [ 506.887767] render error detected, EIR: 0x00000010
    [ 506.887769] page table error
    [ 506.887771] PGTBL_ER: 0x00100000

    So, it's an HW lock.
    Compiz bencmark shows 59-60 (vs 130-150 Jaunty with Intel 2.7 and kernel 2.6.30)
    Without compiz with metacity compositing enbled, it seems all OK.

    @Mago: Compiz problem is related to uxa. in Karmic, only using Accel Mode Uxa make Compiz working.
    Today I tested xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.7.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb.
    Now, Compiz benchmark shows 149-150 Frames/sec.
    So, it seems a regression in Intel drivers from 2.8 with Compiz.
    I'm testing now stability, kernel 2.6.31-14-generic-pae
