This test case tests whether accelerated OpenGL applications under compositing managers work with the Radeon video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a card supported by the Radeon video driver.
- Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration (unless you need it for basic X operation to suceed)
- Ensure the file
/etc/X11/xorg.confdoes not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'radeon' driver
- Ensure that
and related packages are installed by running the command:
su -c "yum install compiz compiz-gnome desktop-effects"
- Ensure the
package is installed by running the command:
su -c "yum install glx-utils"
- Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
How to test
- Enable Compiz by selecting System → Preferences → Desktop Effects. Then check Enable Desktop Effects, and check the Workspaces on a Cube and Windows Wobble when Moved boxes
- Run the command
glxgears(or, optionally, any other OpenGL app you can think of)
- Try covering the glxgears window with other windows
- Move the glxgears window around
- Rotate the desktop cube (ctrl+alt+drag the mouse)
- 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
