ATI Radeon support for compiz easy install
By user13342361 on Jan 25, 2008
Do not use these packages anymore, instead install the latest version of OpenSolaris or nevada everything in integrated now.
Thanks to the ATI radeon DRI 3D driver Minskey is porting to Solaris. Compiz is running on ATI radeon based machines.
The latest binaries release of this driver can be found here.
To check if compiz is likely to run on your machine you can either download
hardware check script or
run the following command line in a terminal :
# /usr/sfw/bin/wget -O - http://www.gnome.org/~erwannc/compiz/compiz-0.6.2-on-solaris-check.perl | /usr/bin/perl
If the result is positive then :
- download the updated installer.
- and run it with the --with-experimental-ati-support argument.
# ./compiz-0.6.2-for-solaris.sh --with-experimental-ati-support
Note : this driver is not fully stable so you might experience Xserver crashes while using compiz. Use at you own risk !
Feedback is more than welcome as I don't physically have access to an ATI radeon based machine.
Many thanks to Darren Kenny for the ATI Xorg configuration.
