Description of problem:
After the last 'security update' that I had to do, and after rebooting, the windows manager stopped working (that is couldn't move any windows/minimize).
I went to 'System'>'Preferences'>'look and feel'>'windows manager' and got the following error:
"window manager 'unknown' has not registered configuration tool"
I restarted metacity in the terminal and then from 'Personal'>'Sessions' I selected 'automatically remember etc'.
Then I realized that desktop-effects (which was working very well prior to the update) was not working anymore (no cube and no wobble). I tried to enable it and got the following error in the terminal:
Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'desktop-effects' in terminal
I have updated to the latest version 220.127.116.11-34.fc8 which appears to have fixed
the issue. Most likely the problem was related to the DRM issue which seems to
have been fixed in this kernel release.
