I finally got compiz to work on my box, in the end going with the method for FC5 seems like the best route. I replaced the compiz in FC6 with the one from fedoraxgl.tuxfamily
, this made the biggest difference. I'm using version 30.3 of the ATI driver, for now I'm using the installer instead of the rpm. The instructions at fedoraxgl.tuxfamily
are what I followed in the end.
I did have to add a few symlinks, linking the fglrx files in /usr/X11R6/lib/ installed by the ATI installer fixed my issues. If you can get glxinfo to say direct rendering, then you are set. I tried both beryl and compiz compilations from cvs, but the compiz included at tuxfamily was the only one that worked.
It is possible, I'll see if I can get some rpms made to make installation a bit more straight-forward. For now I'll post my xorg.conf and gdm config (custom.conf).
