FSAA under Linux with ATI 10.4 driver

Hi All,
I have been trying to get GLFW 2.7 to compile properly and work properly under
The compiling works fine now. :slight_smile:

I have one remaining problem.
Using the ATI/AMD 10.4 video driver there is no way I can get FSAA to work.
The FSAA test code works fine and reports correctly within the terminal window
that FSAA x4 is supported and active.
The rotating polygon shows NO FSAA active.

Running the exact same compiled file on a duplicate machine but using an
Nvidia video card DOES show FSAA as working properly.

Can any one who has proper Linux understanding please confirm if there is a
FSAA problem within the latest Linux ATI driver or if I am doing something
stupid myself.

Looks like the latest ATI FGLRX driver and Compiz do not work happily together
if one wants to use AA.

eg: ATI +Compiz = no AA

Dont know if it is a problem with the ATI driver itself (since the Nvidia
driver works fine) or if the problem is with Compiz itself.

Just turning Compiz OFF does not appear to slow the desktop down too much and
AA is back. :slight_smile:
