Hy,
I just installed the fglrx 8.42.3 from the ati site, but I don't know how to enable and configure the AIGLX support.
I have an ATI mobility radeon x1600 and the 7.2 xorg.

OK, I've done everything on this site: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_AIGLX
but when I do this:
Code:
eselect opengl list

I get only xorg-x11 and no ati acceleration...why?
This is the output from X log:
Code:
el-loco-asus el-loco # grep -e EE -e WW -e AIGLX /var/log/Xorg.0.log
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(**) Option "AIGLX" "true"
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(WW) fglrx(0): Failed to open DRM connection
(WW) fglrx(0): board is an unknown third party board, chipset is supported
(WW) fglrx(0): Only one display is connnected,so single mode is enabled
(WW) fglrx(0): No DRM connection for driver fglrx.
(**) AIGLX enabled
(EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized.
(WW) fglrx(0): ***********************************************

that's because you installed fglrx via ati installer.

you must use an ebuild to add entries for eselect opengl to be able to switch drivers.

emerge -va ati-drivers

The one thing you should get used to with Gentoo: Almost everything is in portage, enjoy its comfort. Perhaps you have to unmask it to get the latest version though.

I've done the overlay, I've copied all the patches for the 8.42.3 ati drivers, but when I try to emerge the 8.42.3 ati driver the compile fail with this errors:

@Impalatore-polacco:
As Dottout suggested, did you use the sabayon overlay or did you use the ebuild from bugzilla?

I've copied the ati-drivers dir to /usr/local/portage/x11-drivers/ati-drivers and then I've renamed the 8.40.4 ebuilds and patches to 8.42.3 and then I emerged the ati-drivers, thet's all.

After reading this post http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-604241-highlight-atidrivers.html
and this bug http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196820
I think getting ati-drivers-8.42.3 to work properly is more complicated then rename 8.40.4 ebuilds and patches to 8.42.3.
For now, I think the best way is using the ebuild provided in the bug 196820.
But, if you want to use compiz with aiglx, it seems that noboby has found a solution yet.
