Ubuntu Multimedia :: "Nvidia: Direct Rendering Failed, Attempting Indirect Rendering"

Apr 3, 2010

I recently downloaded Frets On Fire and the HRP Polymer pack for Duke3D...Duke3D runs fine with just EDuke32 and no mods, just Duke3D and EDuke32. But when I try the HRP Polymer pack, it says in Terminal "NVIDIA: Direct Rendering failed, attempting indirect rendering." This is fine...if I want the game to lag like hell, I'm sure my video card and the driver for it support DR, the video card is a NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200, the same message appears in terminal when I run Frets On Fire, I think it does with other games too, if someone could explain how to enable Direct Rendering.

I downloaded an FLV video and placed an extra MP3 file over it. Two files. Total: 30 MBI experimented with about seven rendering containers, and QuickTime renderer was the only rendering container that didn't result in sped-up/compressed video or correct rendering for just fifteen seconds.How in the name of all that is holy did this rendering end up with 570 extra MB?

Debian Multimedia :: Get Hardware Acceleration (Direct Rendering) Working On System Without Success?

Mar 6, 2011

I've been trying to get hardware acceleration (Direct Rendering) working on my system without success. I'm not even sure if my card supports DR or not, my searchs haven't turned up a result for this question. I don't know if its the video card, nvidia packages or bad configurations. Any help with the diagnosis?

Distro: Debian Lenny

VideoCard: nVidia Corp. NV44 GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM)

Ubuntu :: Unity Will Not Start / Direct Rendering?

Dec 24, 2010

Version: 11.04 (At least that's what the About Linux file tells me)
Graphics Card: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
System: Dell Netbook. Nothing remotely fancy.

After a night of trying to adjust the graphics settings to work with a reasonable game, I powered down for a few days and went hiking in the woods. Never got the game to work, but I had no problem restarting X and continuing to work. Thus, I assumed nothing was wrong. The only real change was the installation of DRIConf. Upon my return, I started up only to see my desktop background image load, and no GUI. No cursor, no Unity, nothing. When I boot up in recovery mode, GNOME seems to work perfectly fine. If I open DRIConf, though, it says that no devices can be found that are capable of direct rendering. My glxinfo output is below (clearly indicating that direct rendering is working). I assume there's a relationship between these problems. I just switched to Ubuntu a few months ago and am obviously a bit beyond my depth.

name of display: :1.0
display: :1 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4

Software :: Can't Enable Direct Rendering / Resolve This?

Mar 12, 2010

I have no experience with Linux and I tried everything written in forums for my problem, but no result.
I can't enable direct rendering and my screensaver is choppy and can't run anything using 3D acceleration. I suppose everything started when I install NVIDIA 190.53 driver because I had some trouble with flash player with the old drivers 185. My PC configuration is ASUS M2N-MX with nforce 430 integrated 6100 video card and processor AMD 3800+ x2. Now I'm able to run desktop effects but when I start nvidia settings I see there is no acceleration.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz With NVidia - White Bars And Screwed Rendering

Feb 12, 2010

I installed compiz with nvidia trouble is when I run compiz white bars or lines (bars) appear in open windows (icewease, gedit, etc.). They disappear after a few moment and reappear when scrolling a page. BTW everything works fine with metacity running as window manager.

Here is my xorg.conf:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (randy@juliet2) Fri Sep 5 15:03:39 PDT 2008

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection .....

I have the nvidia driver 173.14.09 installed. Running Debian Lenny stable x64 and turion x2 with a geforce 8200M G graphics card with dual screens. I first installed the debian repos compiz, then upgraded to the tuxfamily repo version. I installed the nvidia driver 190 from nvidia's website and that fixed it!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: CPU Doing All Video Rendering?

Oct 21, 2010

I am completely new to Ubuntu and so far am pretty happy. I am running into an issue playing web videos, ..... (flash) as well as html5. What is happening is that the CPU is doing all the work instead of the GPU causing the video to skip/stutter, here are the system specs.

MSI K7N2 Delta 2 LSR (latest bios)
AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (Barton)
2GB's PC3200
nVidia 6800GT (AGP)
Ubuntu 10.10 32bit (fresh Install
nVidia driver 260.19.06

When video is played the CPU's useage climbs to 100% and video lags. Again I am completely new to Ubuntu as well as Linux but I am trying, lol.

I have a JVC Everio video camera that records directly DVD compliant mpeg files. Does anyone have a solution how to prevent re-rendering the files since that takes a lot of time and usually the end result is worse than the original one...If PiTiVi does not enable this can anyone propose some other program to do this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Fglrx Bad Rendering In Gdm And Without Desktop Effects?

Dec 23, 2010

My new machine with a fresh install of Lucid boots up and displays the standard gdm login screen showing the list of users which looks fine. After you hover over a name or other option menus on the display, the pop-up or screen change is rendered poorly. It very slowly fixes itself over time. After I login everything works just fine even with the extra "desktop effects" I recently discovered that if I set the desktop effects to none, I get the same effect on my desktop. I've attached a screen capture to illustrate what I see but find hard to describe. The little horizontal bars will gradually be fixed over a minute or so. Dragging the window around smears that effect around the screen. I've been sniffing around the web off and on for a couple months now but haven't found anything that sounds similar.

Now for some hopefully helpful configuration data: This system is based on an Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard with integrated ATI radeon video, and a 6 core processor. Lucid 32bit.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Enable Hardware Rendering On Radeon 7000?

Dec 24, 2010

So here is my problem In short, I am having trouble enabling hardware rendering on my Radeon 7000. As a result, games run slow, and Compiz refuses to run. ATI Radeon 7000, uses the open-source driver that already comes installed (Mesa, I think it is called) Here are outputs of different commands I think you might find useful. Let me know if you want anything else.

$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]
$ glxinfo | grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa X11

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Compiz - Config Not Working - Check Says No Rendering In Use

Feb 9, 2011

i have ubuntu studio 10.04 installed and this is my second installation of the system. now that i have updated the system, got the fglrx drivers for my ATI HD5750, installed compiz-config-settings and glx-dock (aka cairo-dock). the first time i started the glx-dock, half of the dock was visible and it was distorted all over. so i ran compiz-config-settings for the first time and saw that it wasn't also working. then i tried to find a solution for a few valuable hours because it was essential to customize the feel of an OS but i think i have came to a point that i should stop trying to learn things that i see for the first time but ask and hope for the best (soon). anyway i should say that compiz and cairo dock was working the first time i installed the system. now when i run compiz-check, it gives the following output:

Code: Gathering information about your system...

Distribution: Ubuntu 10.04
Desktop environment: GNOME
Graphics chip: ATI Technologies Inc Device 68be
Driver in use: fglrx
Rendering method: None

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP]
Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP]

At least one check had to be skipped: Error: No rendering method in use (AIGLX, Xgl or Nvidia) ok AIGLX doesn't start, so i check Xorg.0.log and it says: (it has loaded and initialised AIGLX but maybe i misunderstand something, anyway you should see for yourself)

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasle Rendering Bugs (Black Selection Box)

Feb 11, 2011

I'm noticing some odd rendering glitches under Iceweasle 3.5.16, with GNOME 2.30.2 running Debian 6.0 i386 default install.Google for example has an odd black bar that blinks, it almost seems like some odd selection bug (but I have not made any selection). Sometimes it doesn't appear other times right after starting Iceweasle it happens. Any ideas? It happens on other websites in random areas.

Debian Multimedia :: Weird Content Rendering With Iceweasel - Can't Click On Any Of The Links

Jun 7, 2011

Alright ... recently switched from Ubuntu with FF 4.0 to Debian with Iceweasel which I had to upgrade to 4.0 since I really liked the way it worked on Ubu 10.10 ... but I'm having some really strange rendering issues. Flash is not a problem at all, works fine on all flash sites that I've checked out. Some sites though, including this Debian forum, do not show everything in the Iceweasel browser window.

For example, sometimes I'll be browsing on a page with huge chunks of white, clearly indicating that "something" should be in those spaces. When I look at those same pages with Chrome or Opera, everything is filled the way it should be ... all content is displaying properly.

On some sites, like this forum, the rendering is even worse because not only do some items not show up, but in addition most of the links don't work at all. For example, if I use Iceweasel 4.0 to look at the board index of this forum, I can't click on any of the links, not the links in the main sections anyway. If I open up Chrome (that's what I'm using to write this) or Opera, the problem is gone.

What the heck is going on, does anyone know? Is this an Iceweasel bug? Am I missing some package update? I'd hate to have to switch my preferred browser just because this weirdness is going on. At first I thought it was a fluke, specific to a site or two only, but at this point I've seen these rendering issues on about 10 sites ...

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Page Rendering - Not Displaying Portions Of Pages Properly ?

Jun 10, 2011

I guess this is a part deux, since I already posted one rendering issue which was eventually resolved ... having to do with the themes of this Debian Forum. Well, I don't know if this is related to that, but yesterday I noticed on another site that my Iceweasel 4.01 is not displaying portions of pages properly. See attached images. Both Chrome & Opera display that page correctly, I've included a screenshot of the same page with Chrome. I have JAVA installed and everything works perfectly fine accross the board on all browsers, except for this "once in a while" issue with Iceweasel. I've noticed this "missing content oddity" on three sites so far (out of 50 or more). No problem with eBay, craigslist, paypal, and other major players.

Open the images with a new tab, then compare both images side by side for best results.

Ubuntu :: Pdftotext Rendering Between OS?

Feb 10, 2011

I had a working pdftotext script working and custom made a parser for the info in it, but upon moving from CentOS 5.5 to Ubuntu (version unknown) and installing poppler-utils, pdftotext works, but the rendering is different by quite a bit causing a ton of issues. I also tried on another CentOS (5.2 this time) and it rendered the same as Ubuntu. I'm trying to figure out the problem so it renders the same, I'm using the same code and everything.

Ubuntu :: Rendering Of Characters In Firefox?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a weird issue in Firefox on Ubuntu 10.10, and sadly it's a periodic mistake that I don't know how to initiate... Sometime in firefox some of the characters seems not fully rendered, and as I recall it can also happen in menu fonts sometimes. In the attached screen-shot you can see that it's the a character that has the problem - but only for one font type or? But I have seen this with most characters I think - and as stated this happens randomly.For instance right now I looked again in the tab in firefox where I just 5 minutes ago did the screen-shot and now all characters are correct?? I have tried to reload or even restart firefox when it occurs, but this is now guaranty for a solution... When it happens it makes many homepages unreadable
