Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436735
Radeon 7500 DRI broke?
Last modified: 2009-02-07 13:53:42 EST
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

That X log looks perfect. What's the failure mode in compiz?
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.
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.
I would have to reinstall a F-8 host to test this...
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

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