    Smile Fixed!

    I added this to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
       Option "Composite" "Enable"
       Option "RenderAccel" "Enable
    EndSection
    And made this simple script:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/nvidia/libGL.so.1 beryl-manager
    I added that script to my startup programs, restarted X, and now Beryl works!

    What version of driver are you using?? When I try that command I still get: beryl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/nvidia/libGL.so.1.0.9746: undefined symbol: _nv001274gl

    Thanks icydog. It works for me as well. I am using the latest 64-bit nvidia driver from livna.

    I think ya'll know my point of view where this "beryl" thingie is concerned, and although I can get it running on my P4 3.06 GHz, 1 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 system, "works" is definitely not the term I'd use to describe the process.

    For starters, if LD_PRELOAD needs to be set, why doesn't the beryl-manager do it by itself without the need for a command-line kludge? Secondly, why doesn't this particular version make the beryl-manager available in the System-->Preferences-->More Preferences menu anymore? And finally, when I do run beryl-manager, it kills off metacity but doesn't replace it with anything until I force it to reload the window manager.

    Bottom line... If you're into dicking around with your computer, this is all just fine, but if instead, you're into using the box, beryl is still lame-ware. I'll probably continue to give it a spin whenever a new version comes out, but it'll have to become a whole lot more robust before I'll make it part of my standard setup.

    I'm sure it will eventually become a fine desktop environment, assuming it's developers take a bit more responsibility for their code and develop a more rigorous testing program, but for now, it remains most appropriate for hobbyists and developers. Just my $0.02 worth...

    I totally agree. It used to work out of box for me. All I needed to do then was to add "beryl-manager" into gnome session manager so that it starts whenever I login into gnome. However, I cannot just wait until the fixed version comes out. Believe it or not, I have got so used to the transparent backgrond in gnome Terminal now and since I have dual monitor setup, only beryl handles maximized windows to my liking. It only takes me a one time effort to write a startup script with the LD_PRELOAD and add it into the session manager, and temporarily disabling the old "beryl-manager", and forget about it. When the fix is out, I can easily switch back without a sweat.

    By confirming the work around solution posted by icydog in my earlier post, I hope it helps others like me who want to have beryl back as quick as possible.

    jdeslip, I think this only works on nvidia 9746 drivers. Try updating.

    Hi Icydog,

    I am using 9746. I got it working though by doing two things. One erasing some left over 9625 and 9631 files that were in my /usr/lib64 directory. Then it would work but would complain it did not have access to /dev/nvidia0 and /dev/nvidiactl. So, it was doing indirect rendering instead of direct. I did chmod a+rw on those files and now it doesn't complain about that. Is this safe?

    Are you using Livna drivers? When you yum update those, the old ones should automatically get erased.

    I think udev is supposed to make the permissions on /dev/nvidia* to allow the current X user to write them. When I am logged in, they are owned by me, with permissions 600. Do you have livna-config-display (http://www.diffingo.com/downloads/li...4-1.noarch.rpm) installed? Just run it and choose AIGLX. I had to do that to get the old version to work; it might work for the new one, too.

    Ah, thanks dmbrown, I see that they are now owned by jdeslip - not sure why yesterday they were owned by root.

    icydog - I now use livna-drivers. But some time in the past I used the script from nvidia, I think that was my problem - there were some leftovers.

    Anyway, seems to work now! Thanks.

    Now onto a superficial issue!! Why can't I make the caps transparent in this version?

    thanks icydog. I've been trying different drivers and xorg.conf settings for a few hours. This command immedietely got Beryl up and running (x64, fedora core 6, nvidia 7600). Should livna or Fedora be notified to include this in future beryl packages?

    you the man

    Okay, I am going to display my ignorance here, but where are startup programs located? (I am using Gnome)

    Thanks. I knew it was probably something simple. I don't think I had ever looked at that particular utility before.

    then paste the following into it.

    Code:
    [beryl]
    name=Beryl svn for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch
    baseurl=http://www.saafinternational.com/beryl/repo/RPMS/$basearch/
    enabled=1

    then run:

    yum upgrade
    I tried running this but it says a bunch of packages are set to be updated but it fails to update because I need beryl-plugins that is greater than 2.0
