Compiz Fusion on Sabayon Linux 3.5 Loop 1 for Dell Latitude D630 (Intel 965GM X3100 chipset)

When I first tried Sabayon Linux (version 3.4f) Compiz Fusion was able to start, but when move a window it locked up.

A few days ago I installed the 3.5 version and noticed that the machine did not lock up anymore while using Compiz Fusion which is great.
BUT when I maximized and minimized the window or turned the cube it was not fluently.
Even If I only had one terminal open it still wasn't performing very well.

For daily use I use Debian and Compiz Fusion does work great there.
So I went to my config and compared them (another possibility was different versions of drivers, ...).
The only difference I see there is:

Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"

I commented this out and restarted Xorg.
Now everything goes great:)
There is only one downside: graphics quality seems lower (sharpness in the animations).

Although I normally do a minimal install of a distro and install the packages I really need, I do like Sabayon Linux because of it's real ease of use. (and of course because it's Gentoo based :D )
I only had to change this one line and my system works perfect (and this even for a beta version).
This made me very happy about Sabayon!
