Angry AIGLX in FC5 has messed up my computer !!


i just installed AIGLX using yum and the small tutorial/repo on http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-d.../msg00971.html and my whole FC5 is messed up. when i restarted, at 1st i saw just some minor bugs, the text at several places was appearing as nothing more than a straight line. then when i tried to activate the composite manager things became much worse. apparently my metacity no longer seems to be functional and i cannot do several things like change desktops or even move stuff around as the window borders do not render. i have absolutely no clue how i can get rid of this and go back to good old FC5 so i was hoping someone else here might have experience with AIGLX and can tell me where i am going wrong or how i can remove it. if not, i will have no choice but to re-install FC5 all over again tomorrow

Hey hey hold oN.. No need to re-install mate. Do this as 'root'---

Edit your '/etc/gdm/custom.conf' and comment out the lines under [servers] like this

Code:
[servers]
#1=aiglx
#0=inactive
IF your confident you can even delete these lines (but not the [servers] line).

Hope this helps
Cheers
