Ben,

        Tell me how you got it to work. I have gone by 2 different howtos
specific for my ATI card and I still cant get compiz to do anything
other than bring my desktop to its knees. Literally watching each pixel
get drawn. This on my Toshiba P35, ATI 9700, 1G of RAM.

        Do you have a favorite link you will post? I would love to check compiz
out. I get the compiz icon in the task bar, I restart the desktop, but
nothing.... I seem to have everything installed:

[root Rankin-P35a/home/david] # rpm -qa | grep compiz
compiz-fusion-plugins-extra-0.5.2_git070824-22
compiz-emerald-0.5.2_git070825-1.4
compiz-fusion-kde-0.5.2-3.1
compiz-emerald-themes-0.5.2_git070825-2.6
compiz-fusion-plugins-main-0.5.2_git070824-22
compizconfig-settings-manager-0.5.2_git070825-22
compiz-kde-0.5.4-40.2
libcompizconfig-0.5.2_git070824-22
libcompizconfig-backend-gconf-0.5.2_git070824-23
compiz-0.5.4-40.2
libcompizconfig-backend-kconfig-0.5.2_git070825-1.4
compiz-manager-0.0.1_git071011-6.1
python-compizconfig-0.5.2_git070825-22


        Though it looks like I'm one version behind. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. In the mean time, I'll install 0.6.0 and see if that helps.
