This test case tests whether accelerated OpenGL applications under compositing managers work with the Intel video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a video adapter supported by the driver, and Fedora 11 or later (or Rawhide from any time after mid-February 2009).

How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'intel' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Enable Compiz: menu -> System -> Preferences -> Desktop Effects, click Enable Desktop Effects, and check the 'Workspaces on a Cube' and 'Windows Wobble when Moved' boxes
  5. Ensure the glx-utils package is installed, and run glxgears (or, optionally, any other OpenGL app you can think of)
  6. Try covering the glxgears window with other windows
  7. Move the glxgears window around
  8. Rotate the desktop cube (ctrl+alt+move the mouse)

Expected Results

  1. OpenGL apps should run properly and with full acceleration and behave as any other window. Covering them should work properly, they should move smoothly and wobble (when this effect is enabled), and should render properly when the desktop cube is being rotated
