[solved] radeon driver troubles

Question

I recently made the switch from fglrx to the radeon drivers for my video cards. The installation and modifications to the kernel went well and my system booted correctly. However, when I ran my compositor, compton, with backend glx things slowed down -- specifically, window dragging was very slow and laggy -- almost like a vsync issue. This led me to check my X.org log, where I found the following:

[    22.676] (II) RADEON(0): EDID for output DVI-0

and

[    22.753] (WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
[    22.753] (II) RADEON(0): Acceleration disabled

EDIT: I am also getting the following error:

[   996.530] (II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI2 capable
[   996.530] (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
[   996.531] (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized swrast
 

My specs, if they will be useful:

  • xorg-server-1.16.1-r4
  • xf86-video-ati-7.5.0
  • mesa-10.3.5
  • llvm-3.5.1
  • Radeon HD 7850

Any ideas as to how I can re-enable direct rendering and acceleration / resolve the problem with GLamor?
