I finally was able to get Compiz and AIGLX working on my E1505 for a bit last night. Right now, I’m not too impressed. Granted, the eye candy and such was nice. I really liked the Cube effect when switching desktops. However, the program is still very alpha and very unstable. I lost direct rendering when I got the requirments installed and such, so there went any way to play video games.
For now, I’m going to say that seeing it in action was nice, but I still think it’s not ready for prime time yet. I’m going to wait a while, and once I have a desktop setup ready for it I’ll try again on something like Fedora, Suse, or Ubuntu.
I still think Gentoo is for me though.
