compiz on CentOS 5.4?

I've just installed Centos 5.4 and would very much like the extra eye-candy supplied by compiz. I cannot seem to find any information regarding how to install it, however. Any tips are appreciated.


I should also mention that I'm on 64-bit, so x86_64 is needed.

yum install compiz
If you have the nvidia proprietary drivers installed add this or verify that you have on /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section “Module”
Load           “glx”
Load     “extmod”

Section “Device”
Identifier     “Videocard0″
Driver         “nvidia”
Option      “AddARGBGLXVisuals” “True”
Option  “DisableGLXRootClipping” “True”

Section “DRI”
Group        0
Mode         0666
You can enable the effects on System->Preferences->Desktop Effects of the gnome menu.
