from what i'v read this is the impression iv gotten, so im just crossing my
fingers and hoping for the best
If I remember correctly, E is the previous WM for Gnome.
So hopefully it will be simple to switch my current Ubuntu system.
We'll see if E supports compositing.
Well e17 runs fine on both Xgl & AIGLX. They're just Xservers. Compiz &
Beryl are gl composting window managers. E17 does its own window
management and neither compiz nor beryl work w/ e17. There is a
composting manager for e17 called Bling but it's only a module for
xcompmgr and therefor can only do non-gl composting and is really only
good for transparency and menu fading effects. In other words you won't
get the spinning cube when you switch desktops or the wobbly windows
since open gl is what makes this possible. The latest word is that E18 will
have a native composting manager.
Q: Do you support XGL and AIGLX?
A: No, 3D based desktops aren't supported by this driver.
Q: Is OpenGL indirect rendering supported?
A: No, OpenGL indirect rendering (OpenGL over the network) isn't
supported by this driver. Only direct rendering (local OpenGL
applications) is supported.
