  • ATI to follow AIGLX/DRI or just GLX_texture_from_pixmap

    I find the reference to AIGLX in the Phoronix review confusing
    "...fglrx drivers will support AIGLX".

    Isn't AIGLX a Mesa/Xorg/DRI feature and compositing can be done without AIGLX (eg. Nvidia)?


    My understanding of compositing is that

    compositing = Nvidia libGL.so + GLX_texture_from_pixmap OR
    Xorg server with AIGLX/DRI/Mesa

    Where does the fglrx architecture fit into this equation.

    ATI will likely be adding support for GLX_texture_from_pixmap in a future release, though the details are shady.
