I have 7.12 installed on my thinkpad t60p (FireGL V5250) under RHEL 5., and it seems stable under non-compiz use.
I just ensured AIGLX was enabled, and enabled desktop effects. Unfortunately as soon as the compiz window manager starts, the desktop effectively freezes. Any running apps continue to run, but cannot be interacted with. Further an attempt to switch to a VT results in simply a flashing cursor top left.
Aftersome reading/some tweaks, Here's the errors I get
* Using the GTK Interface
* Searching for installed applications...
* gnome session
* No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap present with direct rendering context
... present with indirect rendering, exporting: LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1
* Executing: compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --indirect-rendering
compiz (core) - Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
