No animation with Glxgears [solved]

I'm running ATI proprietary driver Catalyst 12.4 , driver packaging 8.961
OpenGl 4.211361
(taken from Amd control centre amdcccle).

If I try and run the demos:
glxgears
fgl_glxgears
glxgears_fbconfig

The window appears showing the gears but they do not move, no animation.
The terminal window updates every 5 seconds with fps but not sure why I have
no animation.


Here's my /etc/X11/xorg.conf  (originally started by aticonfig --initial)


Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Arch"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        Option      "ModelName" "Samsung Syncmaster 932B"
        Option      "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
#       Option      "OpenGLOverlay" "0"             ##
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
        Mode 0666
EndSection


Hardware:
ATI Radeon 5750HD series 1G DDR memory


I've probably done something stupid, most of my mistakes are,
anyone know what's wrong?

Re: No animation with Glxgears [solved]

pleas post the output of

glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: No animation with Glxgears [solved]

Does it help to run vblank_mode=0 glxgears or vblank_mode=1 glxgears?

Great things come in tar.xz packages.

Yes that's solves the problem.
If I type vblank_mode=0 or 1 at a terminal I can run glxgears or fgl_gears

Do you know what package vblank_mode belongs to?

[anc@orac ~]$ which vblank_mode
which: no vblank_mode in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/opt/kde/bin:/usr/bin/core_perl:/opt/qt/bin)

Its not in any of the bin directories, and I cant find a man page entry.

Will mark as solved.
Thanks you.

A bit of education here ...   in this case, vblank_mode is an environmental variable.  When one sets a variable on a command line before a command, that variable is valid for that command, then goes out of scope when the command terminates.

If you said,:
foo=bar bletch
The variable 'foo' would take the value 'bar'; then 'bletch' would run and would be able to see the value of foo.  Then bletch terminates, the variable foo reverts to what it had been before.  If it did not exist before, then foo vanishes.
