How to make compiz work again.

This worked for my laptop, which has Intel graphics. That means I'm running mesa-dri-drivers, not mesa-dri-drivers-experimental. From reading bodhi, this should work for the experimental drivers as well. There's a bug filed against mesa-7.9-0.6.fc14, Bug 613118, but this workaround got my compiz running until 7.9* is fixed.

[gene@Mobile-PC ~]$ yum list installed mesa* glx-utils

[gene@Mobile-PC mesa]$ sudo yum --nogpgcheck downgrade ./*
During the downgrade, I picked up a new leaf that should be needed once the 7.9 mesa branch is fixed. You'll need to use "--exclude=mesa* --exclude=glx-utils" with yum until they're fixed. Or exclude them in /etc/yum.conf.
