Hi Trond,

I would like to hear your thoughts on the Novell version of XGL as shown in this cool google video:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-199899523054020719&q=Linux

Is the Fedora version anywhere as advanced as this ?, the last time I tried it, it really screwed up my configuration and it took a lot of yuming to fix.
 ... which is the reason it wasnt installed by default and marked
experimental. Anyway you are seeing Compiz which is a window manager
that provides the whiz bang effects and confusing that with the
underlying framework. Metacity has a compositing manager with similar
effects and Compiz can run on AIGLX too.

As I said earlier AIGLX is part of Xorg 7.1 and easily enabled now.

More information on what all this means is available at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RenderingProject

For me, watching this video make me feel really jealous, However, I
agree with the Fedora development approach on the GLX issues but, Novel
have all this candy "in the here and now", and I think that makes a big
difference, are we talking Fedora 10 ?
Xorg 7.1 will be part of Fedora Core 6.
