    What is the 'drirc fix'? I'm having trouble getting OpenGL to NOT use the mesa drivers. Any ideas?

    It's used if AIGLX works but you're getting screen corruption (such as part of your screen getting cut off). the actual fix can be found on page 40 of Firewing's Compiz how-to.

    Compiz and Beryl work very well with the default Radeon video driver!

    Comments: Hibernates correctly with Suspend2 (which includes patching the Kernel), haven't managed to get suspend to ram working correctly though; Battery drains a bit too quickly. AIGLX worked and configured easily with Compiz and Beryl although it crashes sometimes when using Firefox or Opera (I suspect it is because of Flash). I don't remember anything else, if I do, I'll post later.
