Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

It's in your Xorg config. I know it works with nVidia cards I don't know about ATI. Add it to your Device Section if it's not there, or you can have your nvidia module loaded then do an Xorg -configure which will generate one with all the options listed, just set it to 1.

Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

Mmmmm, very strange, I use kde and if I do a "xcompmgr -c" in a konsole it is unstable, just 2 o 3 seconds and X restarts, but if I use the .kde/Autostart to launch xcompmgr it is quite stable  :shock:

Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

using nvidia cards it's useful to add this patch:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62103

if your kernel supports the new irqrouting stuff - it really adds quite a bit to stability.

Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

No, next week, the release manager is going away and there are still some blocker bugs t fix....

there's a patch floating around which makes xcompmgr much more stable (http://planet.freedesktop.org), it's there, i've had it all running all night fine, no crash, only a few random glithes with kwin.....

no need to add #define comopsite or whatever to host.def, you can enable it in your xorg.conf....

Section "Extensions"
 Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

render accel with nvidia

Option "RenderAccel" "1" 

but yeah, it's shaping up very nicely, i'm starting to think the un-stability isn't as much the extension anymore, but the compositing manager..... we'll see about then when composition managers jump up left right and centre in a few weeks/months....


btw, i'm using cvs HEAD from sun night...

Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

It is slow as hell here, with RenderAccel and without I get the same result, I got the feeling I might have missed something. I'm using a P3 450 with a TNT2. Is it supposed to be this slow?

Anyway, a few building tips, I had to do a couple of things in order to get it to compile:

1. pacman -S flex
2. Add /usr/lib/libfakeroot to your /etc/ld.so.conf (and then run ldconfig) if you are using fakeroot and have yet to do so.

As for getting it to run, add the Extensions section as described, and also change the Driver "Keyboard" in your keyboard section to Driver "kbd".

Since using the effects was very slow and not practical, I'm back to the stable xorg. But if someone has any ideas as to what caused the slowdown and how to fix it, I'll be glad to hear.

Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

man, I can't wait for this release!

I tried to compile xorg using that pkgbuild (it fetches the sources from cvs), but I couldn't make it work sad

Re: xorg 6.7.99 Pre releases...

I can't build this because some file in xorg insists on including /usr/include/linux/config.h.  Which linux-libc-headers is not happy with hmm
