Re: list of compiz/aiglx compatible cards?

Is any one aware of a list of cards that are known to work with the compiz

at all.
If anyone can point me to something that'd be great

We have a list here:

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RenderingProject/aiglx

Nvidia cards are not going to work, the open driver does not support 3d. There's the nouveau.freedesktop.org project that's working on making this happen, but they still have a long way to go. As for ATI, r100 - r300 should work, but there's an issue with maximum texture size. We're trying to find a way to fix this, but for now, dropping the attached drirc in /etc is a way to work around the problem. The locking problem for matrox cards mentioned on the page was fixed recently and I've backported the patch to rawhide, it should show up tomorrow - it affects the xserver and the matrox driver rpms. That said matrox cards are still very much untested with aiglx and compiz, in particular they seem to also have the maximum texture size problem.
