how to override compiz blacklist?

Asked by Herbert V. Riedel on 2007-09-13

The latest change to the compiz package caused a "denial of service" wrt to compiz due to being blacklisted (my desktop machines have
ATI Technologies Inc RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10] and ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] cards) although it was working fine for me; is there any simple way to override the blacklist other than recompiling the package?

compiz (1:0.5.2+git20070912-0ubuntu2) gutsy; urgency=low

  * compiz breaks rs480, and we don't have the granularity to blacklist
    individual chipsets right now. Blacklist ati.

this problem has been solved for me with the latest update:

compiz (1:0.5.2+git20070912-0ubuntu3) gutsy; urgency=low

  * debian/compiz.wrapper:
    - support pci id based blacklisting and add rv480 to
      the blacklist
