XGL On Mandriva Linux!
Monday, August 21, 2006
If you want to test this with Cooker, here is what you need to do :
- Install the needed packages ( compiz, , x11-server-xgl, mesa-demos ) :
urpmi compiz x11-server-xgl mesa-demos
A metapackage exist which will install all the needed packages : task-3ddesktop
- Activate the Composite extension in Xorg. You can do this with drakx11 ( cf "Options" section ) or by editing manually /etc/X11/xorg.conf and by adding the following section :
- Restart X and just login. XGL or AIGLX will be activate automatically if your setup can handle them.
Note : To disable AIGLX, you just need to disable compiz by editing /etc/sysconfig/compiz.
Note 2 : To configure Compiz plugins you can install the package gset-compiz. The packages compiz-quinnstorm and cgwd are also available for people living on the bleeding edge.
Please note that many bugs still exist with Compiz/AIGLX/XGL, you can track some of them with the bug #24556 for AIGLX/compiz."
