I think I just found out why universe never included "beryl-xgl" in the
beryl-core package. It doesn't seem to want to build in ubuntu. I
grabbed the source from beryl-project and tried building it locally. It
fails with an error message about i386 problem with the libGl.a that's
supposed to get built into beryl-xgl. Here's an example:
/usr/bin/ld: warning: i386:x86-64 architecture of input file
is incompatible with i386 output
make: *** [beryl-xgl] Error 1
I also tried grabbing the libGl.a from the mesa-dev package and
substituting that, but it also fails with an error. So, most likely,
getting a workable beryl-xgl in universe may be a while.
I'll try their debs next.
