xf86-ati with glamor 2D acceleration

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?

Re: xf86-ati with glamor 2D acceleration

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. wink

Re: xf86-ati with glamor 2D acceleration

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
ati-dri 9.1.2-1
lib32-ati-dri 9.1.2-1
mesa 9.1.2-1
lib32-mesa 9.1.2-1
mesa-libgl 9.1.2-1
lib32-mesa-libgl 9.1.2-1

Any help would be appreciated.
