The repository have been updated to 20070630git packages Several changes in the RPM Packaging the metapackage that will pull all compiz bits is now known as compiz-all . compiz-core is renamed back to compiz . compiz-* packages no longer pulls compizconfig-settings-manager. compiz-gnome no longer pulls emerald.
