Yeah I might see about documenting it at some point, but I basically just followed the wiki. Although it's still a little quirky wrt to starting beryl-xgl, and beryl-manager during log in. But that kinda gives me a choice when I log in to start metacity or beryl :) > cause I tried many > time but always failes someway, so that I started to think ati-drivers > for X200M are bork :S Nah, it's all about your config. If that sucker is not dialed in it will blow. It took me forever to get mine to where it's at. Still some stuff left like dialing in dual monitors and etc. Here is my current xorg.conf. It's still kinda a mess, but should help out. http://dev.gentoo.org/~wltjr/misc/xpress200m_xorg.conf -- William L. Thomson Jr. Gentoo/Java
