Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
Using aiglx repository for FC5, installing modified Xorg and metacity and
enabling composition manager results in several time switching screen - 1. only
blue screen with shadows, 2. screen with usuall X content (windows, menus etc).
Windows decoration usually disappear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
allways, tested on more installations, 2 different Radeon 9200 cards
Steps to Reproduce:
blue screen with shadows switching with X screen
aiglx effects working
Using X from aiglx repository also results in that the card in combination with
20" LCD monitor with 1600x1200 is not able to find valid mode for this resolution.

Xorg console output
This is console output for the Xorg.0.log - for metacity problem diagnose.
I have exactly the same problem, also with a radeon 9200. I'm running FC5 with
the packages from the aiglx repo on a mac mini.

My Xorg.0.log after trying turning on metacity effects a few times
same problem for me with radeon 9600xt
same problem here with a sapphire radeon 9000 (rv250 if)
moreover compiz crashes with a segfault
Similar problem here with a ATI radeon 9800SE (R350 chipset). When I turn on the
compositing manager with the command:
gconftool-2 -s '/apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager' --type bool true
the sistem hags and I have to cut-off electric power to reboot.

Here's my xorg.0.log
AIGLX works on Radeon 9200 mobil with Stock Radeon drivers installed. Windows
switching and all effects work. However, support for 1280x800 resolution cuts
off right hand portion of screen.
here it works now on FC6
Also works for me on FC6. Closing.
