Ahh OK, so this would affect ATi users running under fglrx+Xgl or Older
nvidia users + Xgl then? Does it affect other classes of user too? I
guess I'm asking under what circumstances would the server support it,
but libGL not support it?
I may be completely out of date now, but I was still under the
impression that for when we run compiz under Xgl, we need to issue a bit
of an LD_LIBRARY_PATH hack to run it against Mesa's libGL...
In such scenarios, the libGL /would/ support tfp no?
Thanks for the info, it's very insightful :)
