Lost direct rendering ( intel ) after yum update

Hi,

Today I did yum update on my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with F8. After that, Compiz will not start, giving the following error message:

Code:
[dogs@uldis ~]$ compiz --replace ccm
compiz (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
This laptop has onboard integrated Intel graphics card and up today I was using experimental intel driver with no problems.

lspci output:

Code:
[root@uldis ~]# lspci

Anybody has an idea on what's going on and how to get the Compiz working again?

It's not a compiz problem !


You have lost direct rendering ( I have also re-titled the thread )



Code:
[dogs@uldis ~]$ export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose; glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2

    GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, 
    GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_OML_swap_method, 
    GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe,

If you have updated the kernel you will also need to recompile this driver again for the new kernel !!

Right, because of your kernel has been updated (Fri 07 Mar 2008 11:38:10 AM EET kernel-2.6.24.3-12.fc8).
Your graphical card driver should be too.
Try following command to check if the corresponding module has well been loaded (it might have not):
Code:
lsmod

It seems there is no intel module loaded for graphical card (there is only for sound).
So, either you must install the module (may be something like xorg-x11-drv-i810 or another iXXX), either it can not be loaded.
For the last case, check the output of dmesg or /var/log/messages.

Compiz is working fine on old kernel.. so I don't think it's not working in new cause I'm missing an rpm... xorg.conf still not changed... weird!

I have this same exact problem. i915 is the kernel module for the graphics card and is present under the new kernel but for some reason direct rendering is not enabled.

Any News on Direct Rendering?

How does one enable Direct Rendering? I have read every entry on every forum that Google returns, even for other distros, but no one seems to ever say quite how to enable it. I have tried everything that has been posted that makes some sense. I suspect Desktop Effects is failing because Direct Rendering is not enabled. Is it a complicated procedure to enable it?

Thanks.

I didn't try desktop effects on the -12 kernel, but I upgraded to the -22 kernel in updates-testing as that fixed my problems with wep-authentication on wlan. My laptop has intel graphics, and I have done nothing to install special drivers for it. Just what comes with F8. I can confirm that desktop effects work here on the -22 kernel, but I have disabled them again as I get a complete lock-up when doing fast user switching with desktop effects enabled.

This lock-up with fast user switching and compiz has been an issue for a while ( you need to stop compiz before switching user ).
