AIGLX extensions

AIGLX extensions


By Yaba
Published: Feb 21 2006
While Novell is working on XGL, Fedora is working on another alternative: AIGLX.

Unlike XGL, AIGLX is not a whole new X server, but provides extensions for the current X.org server while providing similar capabilities. Check out the demos available on the AIGLX Wiki pages.

well well what have we here. Nice competor to XGL with better control...

When I see that working allright on my own desktop then I'll maybe start using it.

By the way, Fedora videos where too short and too blurry. Novell had much better video material...

I agree. It almost seems like Novell and RedHat are giving KDE the stepmotherly treatment ...

Yes, the Novell/Redhat preference for GTK/Gnome bugs any KDE user! What's the Mandriva position? Our project Ekaaty denies GTK/Gnome.

I heard Zack Rusin on the Linux Tech Show and he said Xegl is progressing fast. I wonder when we can see a quick-n-dirty alpha version of it . . .

I was wrong, compiz is now split into compiz-kde and compiz-gnome, you can google for it. It's good news.

it's a crying shame so many good resources are devoted to gnome, when they could go to improving KDE. I honestly don't understand why people use gnome, but I guess some people feel much more comfortable in that paradigm.

I like things to be the simplest possible. X was no such thing anymore. Something that features over 16 million lines of code can't be the right thing (though it works). Novell is indeed on the right track though, of course, Fedora's effort deserves a lot of merit. KDE and other UNIX projects in general should also benefit from a code clean-up (I'm thinking of aRts and many others), for instance. Before it gets messier and drives everyone mad. ;)

But X.org is going to be more simple, devs are making it as modular system (as kernel) and KDE is getting arts off from KDE and changing mediasystem to Gstreamer or other similar (Gstreamer was right now best). And Gnome is doing same as gettin esd(?) off from gnome.


KDE it just must be...

 XGL vs AIGLX

David Reveman (the main code of XGL) has made a good remark regarding this, http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2006-February/013306.html

Nice reply

"So far I haven't heard a single argument for why X on OpenGL is a a bad
idea other than that it's a big step and a lot of work will have to be
done."

Damn right!

Well, the fact that OpenGL is damn slow on non-accelerated chips is a very good reason not to have X running through OpenGL.

I plan to install X, along with Linux, on my PDA very soon (need some parts to fix it first), and it doesn't even have a GPU, so having Xgl installed on that is a BIG no-no. AIGLX is also a no-no, sure, but if I have no option to disable OpenGL, I'm not going to use it.

I haven't tried Xgl at all, so if that's not how it works, just ignore my message. I just fear that making X be an OpenGL app, will hurt people with unsupported (or non-existant) chips, badly.

Xgl still has a place -- sure, people with good hardware (or just mediocre), will gain from it, even more so than AIGLX, but I would rather have both implementations than just the one (which there also is, so all is good).

Both efforts need some practicality, but both efforts look great. I'm psyched!
