I wanted to use glamor for 2D acceleration, but if I enable glamor, my desktop isn't rendered correctly (I can't describe it).
I have a HD7870.
What is required to use glamor correctly?
For me, I had to create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf and use the following settings:
Section "Module" Load "dri2" Load "glamoregl" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Radeon" Driver "radeon" Option "AccelMethod" "glamor" EndSection
Also, I would highly suggest using the xf86-video-ati-git, and mesa-r300-r600-radeonsi-git packages in order to reduce display issues.
I realize it is a month after you posted, but I hope this helps.

I also have HD7870 and have been trying to get ANY acceleration working with no success.
Both glamor and EXA result in this:
[116340.352] (WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled [116340.352] (WW) RADEON(0): Option "AccelMethod" is not used
I have xf86-video-ati-git installed along with
Any help would be appreciated.
