Kororaa AIGLXgl is a live CD demonstrating the new Xgl technology for 3D window manipulation and other unusual effects.
The livecd now also comes with AIGLX (Fedora's 3D accelerator for X) as well as Xgl. The livecd will ask you which 3D system you want to use.
The aiglxchooser script also has the option to choose "None" which will disable all fancy effects and result in a "normal" livecd desktop. The livecd will automatically set the system to "None" for users with NVIDIA video cards as there is no open source driver available for them. Users of ATI might be able to use the opensource radeon driver, although it does not support the latest cards.
Please note: The Kororaa AIGLXgl Live CD 0.3 does NOT include the ATI or NVIDIA non-GPL video card drivers, so 3D effects will not be available on machines that require those drivers. The livecd can still be used without the 3D effects however, and installation to disk is also available.
What's New in This Release:
Major changes include the removal of non-GPL ATI and NVIDIA video card drivers; the inclusion of AIGLX now along with Xgl, 2.6.18 ck patchset based kernel, KDE 3.5.4, Gnome 2.14, updated installer and many bug fixes.
The opensource radeon driver will work with many ATI cards, but not all the newer ones. If you have an NVIDIA video card 3D effects will not be available, however you can still use this CD as a "normal" livecd and installation to disk is available.
