Compiz on OpenSolaris x86
Written by Michael Larabel in Oracle on 23 April 2007 at 12:07 PM EDT. Add A Comment
If you're an OpenSolaris x86 user and are using a NVIDIA graphics card with NVIDIA's binary Solaris drivers, you can now enjoy Compiz on your desktop. Erwann Chenede has produced packages of Compiz 0.5.0 for OpenSolaris x86. In fact, to ease the process he has even written an OpenSolaris install script for Compiz. At this time it is limited to x86 users with NVIDIA graphics cards, and there is also no word on any future Beryl support. More information (along with download links) is available from Erwann's Sun Blog.
