Beryl and intel, what a great match

Laurie has a Dell Inspiron 6000 that has had an early Foresight release candidate on it for a good year now. She finally said she wanted all the latest cool stuff and wanted a reinstall. I grabbed the latest isos and did a fresh install.

This laptop has a intel i915 video card, which didn’t work very well with Xorg 6.8.2 and in the past I had to use the vesa driver. Now, with Xorg 7.1 the intel driver just works. After install, I didn’t have to configure anything to get beryl to work. I installed beryl and beryl-core from and ran beryl-manager. It just worked… so cool! I am really looking forward to shipping the distro with beryl included…
