That's very good news. Thanks.
I wonder what is going on with glx. It works for me on Fedora 6 when using 8774 or the 9625 beta, but causes any gl/glx-using program to segfault on 2629 and the whole kernel to crashes when trying to use glx with the 8776 driver. I saw the 8776 packages on Livna; I don't even know if it is an officially released stable version.
I'm using 8774, but it seems to have a problem with transparency. E.g. rounded window corners in GNOME (Metacity) are draw as black sharp corners. 8776 does draw the transparent bits corrently (rounded corners), but as I said gl/glx causes the whole system to crash.
