Xgl and glxgears wont work?


On my computer I do this
Code:
Xgl :1 -ac -screen 1024x768 &
DISPLAY=:1 glxgears
But instead of seeing the glxgears results that
Code:
glxgears
would make I just get a black box where the glxgears should be. Any idea how I can fix this?

I believe that XGL deactivates acceleration for all other apps that want to use it. One of the work-arounds is to use xgame, which is a set of scripts which launch a new X session in another console...

That MAY be the problem...
