    Question Help installing beryl to SLED 10

    Hello,

    I want to install beryl to my laptop which is running SLED 10 SP1. And before you say it I'm not going to upgrade to SP2!!

    I tried installing it before with the 10.2 repo and it screwed up my computer and I had to re-image it.

    So I'm starting over with a fresh, new computer.

    I just want beryl or compiz-fusion to work without messing my computer up. I heard compiz-fusion won't work on SLED 10 though.

    I have a Intel 915 GM graphics card.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi
    I'm running a SLED10 SP2 with Xgl/compiz and nvidia not sure how it
    would go on intel with SP1.

    I don't think any rpm's are built for compiz-fusion, that would be next
    year when SLED 11 comes out.

    Have a search here for compiz, select SLES/SLED in the dropdown;
    Get It

    Also search on intel and install the 3D Mesa driver for SP1.

    I don't get how this answers my question. I searched and there isn't any compiz-fusion or beryl. and what's the 3D Mesa Driver?

    Hi
    As far as I'm aware there isn't compiz-fusion only compiz for SLED...
    You will need the 3D driver on your intel chip to run compiz.
    Code:
    malcolml@oscar-sled:~$ rpm -qa |grep compiz
    compiz-0.4.0-0.37
    compiz-gnome-0.4.0-0.37
    
    malcolml@oscar-sled:~$ rpm -qa |grep xgl
    xgl-hardware-list-070326-0.12
    xgl-cvs_060522-0.44
    
    malcolml@oscar-sled:~$ SPident
    
    CONCLUSION: System is up-to-date!
    found    SLE-10-x86_64-SP2 + "online updates"

    Hi
    I think you would be looking at building it all from 10.2 sources...
    (if it works)
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...SUSE_10.2/src/

    It all depends if you want to stay with the SLED model for support
