Description Warren Togami 2008-03-09 23:58:32 EDT
In Fedora 8 I could use compiz on this IBM Thinkpad T41 with Radeon 7500. 
compiz even worked beautifully over XDMCP over the network.  But now F-9 client
XDMCP into a F-8 host it seems DRI doesn't work.  (Will get F-9 to F-9 testing

Xorg log
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2008-03-13 16:50:02 EDT
That X log looks perfect.  What's the failure mode in compiz?
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2008-03-13 18:28:04 EDT
compiz just fails to start.

Subsequent tests with F-9 X and F-9 userspace compiz does work.  So perhaps this
is just some kind of incompatibility between F-9 X and F-8 glxinfo and compiz?

If this is simply a "can't support that" then I understand.
Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2008-04-06 19:44:28 EDT
There shouldn't be any wire incompatibility between F9 X clients and F8 X
server.  Why does compiz fail to start though?  If you try to start it from a
terminal it should say _something_ on stdout.
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2008-04-18 10:10:59 EDT
I would have to reinstall a F-8 host to test this...
Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 01:53:48 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Does this still happen in current F10 ?
If you have time to do so, please attach recent dmesg and Xorg log here too.
Thank you.
