Just upgraded RadeonHD to 1.2.3 and now I have DRI working in root....

However it fails from my user:

Quote:

$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
$ sudo glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
olpeleri@kroupouk ~ $


Permissions seems okay to me

Quote:

$ ls -l /dev/dri/card0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 226, 0 Oct 14 15:41 /dev/dri/card0


Any clues why????

I know this is a stupid question, but did you add your user to the video group?

Yeah... I did and it does not matter.

I did a strace of glxinfo under my user and under root and I saw many difference in the library they are trying to use.

My skills are'nt good enough to understand why but I did the following Quick Fix.

mkdir /usr/lib/xorg/i686/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib/xorg/i686/libGL.so.1

Now It works!!!!

So now I have the whooosh effect of KDE 4.1 working WITHOUT the close source driver
