whith Opensuse11 and ATI 8.5 drivers output of glxinfo when logged in as root is “direct rendering: Yes”.
when logged in as user the output is “direct rendering: No”.
When root runs fgl_glxgears it works, as user it dosn’t.
where is the problem? what can I do?
why can only root use direct rendering?
Thanks for the replies.
Either you dont have those lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
or your user account doesn’t include the group video.
thanks for reply!
the problem is , the user is a domain-user and i don’t know how to add to a local group.
but with local users it works.
thanks for help!
Yes, but setting permisssion to 666 for group video breaks
your security! Be warned.
