Hi there
I've never used or installed XGL and now I'm wondering can I install it on i686 platform with Gforce MX400 VGA?
Thanks in advance.

Ok
So, I've installed FC6 and now I'm going to install nvidia drivers. After that Is there anyting special I need to do to run XGL?

Make sure you use the nvidia drivers from linux-testing. Then follow the instructions: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=121119

AIGLX is now working fine. How can I edit the desctop effects?

using gonf-editor.

My question- How smooth is aiglx on your box, does it sometimes jump when "abruptly spinning the cube"
I ask as I use a Gforce MX400, and it I have those problems. Also how much cpu usuage do you have in certain operations.

It's working pretty well I think. When I'm moving the windows the cpu usage is about 50%. How can I spin the cube slowly and how can I stop the edge of the cube at the center of my screen?

you can (ctrl alt click) and drag. Drag the cube around and se howmuch cpu usuage you have

The CPU usage is high only on dragging but for a very short time. The opengl is perfect.
