Went back to and compiz started up correctly.  Then went to .902
and compiz starts corrctly.  But with .903 compiz fails with:

Checking for Xgl: not present.
xset q doesn't reveal the location of the log file. Using fallback
No whitelisted driver found
SKIP_CHECKS is yes, so continuing despite problems.
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present.
Trying again with indirect rendering:
