Just downloaded the latest version of compiz from the fusion git clone and found the request to get the client extensions does not return the last extension - most importantly the GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension.
If I run glxinfo - GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is in both the server and client list.
I made a quick fix to check if GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is the server extensions which works, but I don't think thats the right thing to do as this problem has only a appeared recently. Probably when I upgraded to 7.2.
glxExtensions = glXQueryExtensionsString (dpy, screenNum);
if (!strstr (glxExtensions, "GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap"))
+ glxExtensions = glXQueryServerString ( dpy, screenNum, GLX_EXTENSIONS );
+ if ( !strstr ( glxExtensions, "GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap"))
compLogMessage (display, "core", CompLogLevelFatal,
"GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing");
without ths patch compiz fails to start and hard locks my machine - but thats probably due to my conifg?
