when i log in as a root there's full gpu acc, everything works well and there's a good framerate.

in normal user it's just like there's no open gl

for example: when i go to log out background becomes full black on normal user, while it's faded and semi-transparent in root.

llvmpipe in normal user and AMD BARTS in root, i don't know why

solution?

thanks to everyone for support

"works for root" looks like some issue with permissions. Try adding your user to video group. If you have policykit or consolekit or whatever handles permissions on desktops it shouldn't matter, but then gpu shouldn't be exclusively uesd by root by default.

Code:
gpasswd -a username video

Of course replace "username" with your username.
