Nope. The pixmap to texture extension is needed for AIGLX and this has not been implemented yet.

Forget about AIGLX for a while. This thing isn't mature and there are no fully functional window and composite managers to make use of it yet. The only thing that really needs to show-up now is a 7.1 compatible driver, because right now the whole Linux desktop is broken on NVIDIA.
