[SOLVED] netRadiant - Viewports no longer show and render trails instead (Linux, ATI)

Approximately three months ago I moved from Windows 7 to Linux openSUSE. I made sure that Xonotic and netRadiant are running well, which they did at the time and I even started working on a new map. But a while later after several package updates, I noticed netRadiant broke, and I couldn't find a solution ever since.

The issue is that all 2D and 3D viewports no longer render. I get "views to infinity" / trails in their place whenever I drag something around the screen, though between frames I also see pieces of what should be rendered sometimes. No other program or game on my machine has any similar issues... glxgears also shows fine. Using KDE with desktop effects disabled while running Radiant. I compile netRadiant from the Xonotic GIT. Here's a screenshot, I dragged my IRC window in front of netRadiant as a test:

The most likely cause is an update to the Linux video driver. I have an ATI card (Radeon HD 6800) with the proprietary driver for my distribution. It could be something else as well however. Please don't suggest downgrading the driver to test... I no longer have the rpm of the old driver, and even if I did I feel unsafe about playing with system packages. If anyone knows how to fix the problem or can suggest a safe way to test, please let me know what to try. It could also be an issue on netRadiant's end.

I tried digging into the issue again, and made a surprising discovery; netRadiant renders properly again when desktop compositing is enabled. So as long as I leave desktop effects on, the viewports show as they should. I was disabling compositing for Radiant because I thought that could cause glitches... turns out it's the other way around Tongue

Odd fact: Some weeks ago when I was testing this issue, I toggled desktop effects on and off while in netRadiant, but the issue still happened. It's only now that running Radiant with effects on fixes the problem. Maybe someone keeps messing up the ATI driver each update and putting it back... or rather the X11 server?

This might be linked to another problem on my system; Youtube videos in FireFox play very slowly (lag / low framerate) when desktop compositing is disabled. So again, I NEED desktop effects to watch videos on YT. It seems that having them off causes rendering to be delayed in some circumstances. Very weird... but since I always want desktop effects on, this doesn't bother me normally. Still an issue that should be fixed otherwise.

In other news: netRadiant just crashed my system to the login screen a few minutes ago when I started it up, though it works fine again after restarting the computer. It generated a radiant.log file that might be useful, in case this is part of the same issue:

I did a test on my laptop a while ago and could confirm it's because of the fglrx driver (the issue goes away with the radeon one). Curse fglrx... if only the open-source radeon driver could run 3D games too Tongue Since this is a general issue and not netRadiant I'll see how I can live with it until I can get rid of fglrx.
