The lack of a functioning water effect in Compiz is hardly a "big problem". A kernel panic, now that
is a 'big problem'.
I had the same problem for longer than I can remember, and indeed so did many Ubuntu users: Compiz Water Effect Makes Screen Black In Lucid?
. However I don't have the problem any more after I installed the latest version of the AMD Catalyst for Linux 10.10 driver (a.k.a. FGLRX driver), which is the Portage ebuild ati-drivers-10.10. A 10.10 package is not yet in the Entropy repository, but you can install it via Portage:
- Code: Select all
# emerge --sync
# layman -S
# USE="-qt4" emerge -1v ati-drivers amdcccle
# eselect opengl set ati
# equo rescue spmsync
The last command is to tell Entropy what you did via Portage.
