upgraded from fiesty, where I think i was using xgl and radeon driver ( tried aiglx when 8.42 came out but gave up, it didnt seem to work). it took a while to config the last time around but i got it working, cube, minmax effects, everything all sweet.
following the upgrade to hardy, fireGL was the default hardware driver listed but was not enabled. compiz and emerald didnt seem to work, so i installed the ati binary driver from app manager.
that didn't help, and i havent found a way to get it going yet. let u kno if i have any luck.
