3D effects on fedora 8 on ati 1250

with 7 comments

I have finally found a way to make Compiz work on ATI x1250 on HP 6515b after searching on a large number of forums i finally found it on Fedora Forums all thanks to leigh123@linux and here is my easy way well its not that easy but still it works
PLEASE TRY THIS PROCEDURE CAREFULLY IT HAS NOT WORKED ON SOME SYSTEMS I WILL UPDATE IT AS AND WHEN I GET A DIFFERENT WAY

First enable the Livna repositories type
su
rpm -Uhv http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm

then type
yum install kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit
yum update kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit
service fglrx restart
fglrx-config-display enable

now restart your xserver by pressing ctrl + alt + backspace , then after restarting go to terminal type
fglrxinfo
you should see something like this
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon X1200 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release

and then run
glxinfo
you should see some thing like this
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
server glx extensions:
GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,
GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_OML_swap_method,
GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group
client glx vendor string: SGI
client glx version string: 1.4
.......................................................

now you can proceed with update of Compiz, for this add the compiz fusion repo login as root and type
wget http://www.dfm.uninsubria.it/compiz/fusion/compiz-fusion.repo
cp compiz-fusion.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/

before install remove the old packages type
rm -rf /home/*/.config/compiz
rm -rf /home/*/.gconf/apps/compiz

now install compiz
yum install compiz-all fusion-icon-all compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported compiz-bcop ccsm emerald-themes
after this we have to downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg for all i386 (32bit) users type
wget http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/xorg-x11-server/1.3.0.0/9.fc7/i386/xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.3.0.0-9.fc7.i386.rpm
rpm -U --oldpackage xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.3.0.0-9.fc7.i386.rpm

For x86_64 (64bit) users type
wget http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/xorg-x11-server/1.3.0.0/9.fc7/x86_64/xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.3.0.0-9.fc7.x86_64.rpm
rpm -U --oldpackage xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.3.0.0-9.fc7.x86_64.rpm

now we have to prevent xorg-x11-server-Xorg from upgrading so we blacklist it
gedit /etc/yum.conf
add
exclude=xorg-x11-server-Xorg
at the end and enjoy your 3D effects ……………

PS:- Dont enable too many plugins it will slow things down and there is some problem that i face with the Expo plugin dont enable that

  5. Thanks Ankur!! I searched a long time how to enable 3D on my Acer7520 with x1250 on Fedora8. Until now I was unsuccessful. You step-by-step rocks! I finally got it working. It’s not perfect, but it’s functional.

    thanks again.
