165.33 = 169.07 = 169.12 = "compiz (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work."

Do you use fusion-icon to launch compiz? Where is compiz installed from (default opensuse repo or X11, perhaps cyberorg)?
Try installing from X11, which is updated.

Also you could try git packages from cyberorg if you want all latest stuff (development version, but works fine here):

try this it fix my problem


Fix with Compiz Manager:

Add '--no-libgl-fallback' to COMPIZ_OPTIONS in /usr/bin/compiz-manager

Fix with Compiz Fusion Tray Icon:

Add '--no-libgl-fallback' to compiz_args in /usr/lib(64)/python/site-packages/FusionIcon/data.py

this one:
download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/XGL/openSUSE_10.2
... yes fusion-icon

Hi skarf,
this is something several people experienced including me. Could not get compiz nor UT2004 working properly. deselected Nvidia drivers from YAST and installed manually the 100.14.23. Now everything works fine with openGL again. Up to now I do not see a need for upgrading the driver for my 7600gt. Try with the older drivers and I would wonder if thats not solve the issue.

Hi, Osz and cjcox you may be right.

I installed 100.14.23 and now compiz is running on nvglx.

New problem: massive performance problems.
Everything is much slower than on xgl.
And the tearing effect ( initial idea -> getting off tearing ) ist still present.

So I wonder what to do next. What to insert to xorg.conf ... Whatever

first thought: is the tearing effect an normal Condition on xgl or compiz at all?
Anything I can do about it on xgl? or on nvglx? no working vsync and triple buffering?

if not on xgl... on nvglx this may me be a problem:

...and ensuring the output contains the library libnvidia-tls.so.1. Only the NVIDIA OpenGL drivers should link in this library, so if you see it, your linking is correct. If not, you will need to rebuild compiz, ensuring it links against the NVIDIA version of libGL.so.....

Hi skarf,
I guess you have got following options in your xorg.conf already ...

Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "Composite" "Enable"

In your nvidia settings go to OpenGL settings and enable Sync to VBlank. In compiz-fusion-icon go to settings manager and in "general" -> "display settings" you will find sync options as well. I could not get rid of the tearing completely but with playing around the options I got it working better now.....

You will probably not get the tearing issue solved with the old drivers. The new drivers seams to be better for VBlank sync but I have not get it working at all so downgrading the driver was the valid option for me. Maybe I have to upgrade to a 8800gt to use the 169 series drivers.

Ok,

this isn't going to work i guess.
So I should get back to XGL and an newer driver.

Thank you anyway.

I don't use Xgl anymore... I use Nvidia glx directly. UT2004 works fine along with Composite (though with a penalty... if you have a 7600GT or better, shouldn't be a problem at least up to 1280x1024). I have a 7600GS and I lowered the resolution to 1024x768 for the game... my solution to the performance loss for running composite.

In the past I used to use Xgl and the trick where you can run UT2004 on display :93, etc... but it wasn't stable.... what I'm using now is VERY stable. Occasionally I get Xv corruption.. I just Ctrl-Alt-F1 and then Alt-F7 and the corruption goes away (talking about videos)... it's not a bad problem and doesn't happen all of the time.

About performance loss - you can exit compiz before launching game, I do that all the time (it is easy with fusion-icon); ut2k4 is running smoothly that way on 1600x1200 (7600GT).
