where is the XGL live cd?



There is this XGL stuff which hardware accelerates the linux desktop – but since there are many movies that show the magnificence of this there is actually no real way to try it for ourselves – except when we would compile it ourselves… and that’s,…. well no solution at all.



So – I am searching for a not-too-much-pain bringing way of trying this XGL stuff…

    I second that! But I think I need to take the pain and try compiling this stuff myself. Just need to check my calendar… Ehem, seems like 2009 is going to be a year with some time left. Damn 9-5 job!
    So give me that live CD already!

    you might want to try ubuntu dapper drake 6.04 dev release for that.
    and follow the instructions here:

    i got it running here okay.
    on a sony vaio, mobile athlon xp 2000+ geforce go 420 (16mb shared).
    no compiling… although you’ll need to install it to your hd.
    and you will need a nvidia card (at least for me and my radeon 9800pro @ home it didnt work..)

    regards..

    sorry to post again 😉
    looks like with the dapper live cd it is possible
    to test xgl without hd install – but it needs some work!

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve released a Gentoo based (Kororaa) Xgl Demo Live CD in case you’re interested.
