Default just curious behaviour

Hi all. Back this morning, turn on the computer and every thing looks as usual.
My ubuntu inits just right.
XGL / compiz givesme the usual eye candy with my old fx5200 video card.

Besides that the update of compiz just broke it (Quinn is working on that) when I ran "glxinfo | grep rendering"
it says that direct rendering isn't there.

Also nvidia X server settings tool doesn't show any option, as usual when I have no 3D aceleration.

I just tried some games with 3D acceleration and some screensavers and 0.0, they run very fast!!!.

Why is this happening, no that I don't want to 3D to work but if this tools isn't working how should I know when there's a problem with my video card.

It may be just a anecdotical behaviour, but I just wanted to you peapole.

Has anyone the same "problem"?, has my glxinfo / nvidiasettings a bad attitude?

Thanks anyway.

edit: I forgot to say I have installed the brand new drivers before instaling xgl/compiz, so I don't think it's a driver issue

This is expected behavior if you're using XGL. Please see the other threads where this has been discussed in the past for more details.

ok, thanks. Many times I get lost, there are so many xgl/compiz threads around that can't take a look to every detail.
