    Blacklisted graphics card?

    I ran Compiz because I was having problems with visual effects. Is there anyway to fix this issue?

    Checking for texture_from_pixmap... [ OK ]
    Checking for non power of two support... [ OK ]
    Checking for composite extension... [ OK ]
    Checking for FBConfig... [ OK ]
    Checking for hardware/setup problems... [WARN]

    Something potential problematic has been detected with your setup:

    Your particular graphics chip may be blacklisted on certain distributions.
    However that does not necessarily mean you will not be able to run Compiz.

    You can skip this blacklist -- but keep in mind that you did so.
    Do not complain if you encounter any problems with Compiz afterwards.


    Thanks,

    Question Re: Blacklisted graphics card?

    The same thing has happened to me, and I do not fully understand the implications.

    I found the source code for the script which runs the check, but it tells me little.
