At Last Beryl + XGL is now a Reality

At least, after hard work and many hours I managed to get Beryl + XGL working.

Now the method I followed is not orthodox, but it worked.

If I haven’t written already then I tell you that I had Kubuntu Feisty installed in my pc.

I tried to make it work with XGL but with no luck. After a lot of
frustration, and an almost damaged to death xorg (cause of the constant
changes on it’s configuration) I took the decision to switch to Ubuntu,
meaning that I would loose many of my configuration etc etc.

But that was my final solution, my last chance to get xgl (the cube) to work.

So I installed Ubuntu Feisty, by the way the installation was a piece
of cake. After that the only thing I cared about is to get XGL working.

So I followed the instructions here  (I know that this is on greek) which is a translation of these instructions.

After that my excitement went UP ! Beryl and XGL worked like a charm.
