Yes, you read that right. You can finally run your ATI graphics card with the fglrx driver and run Compiz, Beryl, or Compiz Fusion without using XGL! This is coming 13 months after NVIDIA had introduced its AIGLX support, but now just days after the release of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon it's here for ATI hardware. Granted, if you were using an older ATI GPU with the open-source Radeon driver, you could have been benefiting from AIGLX already.

    The buildpkg feature does not work in gutsy.


    cp: cannot stat `./usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri': No such file or directory
    dh_install: command returned error code 256
    make: *** [binary] Error 1
