Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Whenever an opengl app is run under a compositioning window manager, it screws up, going all glitchy and flickery, as shown in a blog here - http://hoegsberg.blogspot.com/2007/08/redirected-direct-rendering.html . I believe this is a BIG blocker for the composite by default, as many desktop apps use opengl for little things, such as the visualizations in amarok, and it really doesn't look pretty. There is a workaround in the blog post, but i don't know how hard it is to implement, as it seems to involve some deep changes to the x server and driver. By the way, im running on an intel GMA 950.

Sorry, duplicate
