Post any body tried XGL or AIGLX on Dapper-especially on 915GV gfx cards


Hello,
I use dapper flight5 updated to latest including to gnome-2.14.i tried few howto's inorder to have XGL working on my system with intel 915GAV mobo and onboard graphics card and audio.but i ended up in having no dri support and no windows decos(top area).so rolled out to default position.same happened with AIGLX which claims 915GV card support.i know many users are having this mobo.so some geeks/nerds get us a good How to on XGL
Thank You

AIGLX seems to be getting recognised and added to XGL project and its a good news for poor men like me.I uses a 915GAV board with onboard GFX card.

Novell is saying i810 driver will be updated soon to have to work smoothely with XGL+Compiz.by that time freedesktop.org and X.org people will make AIGLX parts moved into XGL project,which is also a good news for intel GFX card owners Very Happy ,meanwhile i saw this thread in ubuntu forum,where a guy seems to have got XGL+Compiz working for his 915G card using latest i810 drivers.

# Intel
All intel graphics chips need the newest packages of Xgl and compiz for running flawlessly. Please wait for SL10.1 rc1.

* i915, i945
Accelerated XVideo is broken on these cards. See Troubleshooting.

Also this guy seems to have success with latest "i810" driver snapshot on a 915card:
