One other issue I am having with the box after the kernel update is that compiz
whitescreens now. (that usually means a driver wasn't recompiled, but this is
with the stock xf86-video-ati package). Compiz starts just fine, I get the
splash screen, but everything is white. I have had that a number of times when I
have forgotten to recompile a driver after a kernel update, but not when using a
The package I have is:
(I checked with lsmod and the radeon driver was loaded just fine)
Currently I am not using an xorg.conf, so everything is from the default
settings. Not long ago I posted about how impressed I was with the new kernel
and ati driver, but something seems to be out of whack now. What can I try to
get compiz running again?
(I got this much info before being stuck by the UTF-8 issue, so we will have to
fix that one before I can boot to work on this compiz issue)
Thanks again for your help.
