Debian and AIGLX

Hi !
What is AIGLX ? AIGLX is a module of Xorg 7.1, it permit you to have 3D effect on your desktop. Actually Xorg 7.1 is in debian unstable. With AIGLX you just have to had the follow line, to have 3D desktop effects.

Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0666

Section "ServerLayout"
Option "AIGLX" "true"

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"

Section "Device"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
Option "DRI" "true"

You can see it's juste a module turned at ON.

Soon we needn't Xgl and my tutorial. I hope I help you during this few months. I think you can test AIGLX by adding unstable mirror in you /etc/apt/sources.list.
