FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE, 7300GS and Compiz
3 Attachment(s)

I've been running Linux on this box for a while (E6600 Core2, NVIDIA 7300GS, 2GB of RAM),
using compiz and the nvidia proprietary X driver without a problem.

However, I've recently installed FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE, x11 and compiz.
My X Server is configured properly, and i've installed the latest 169.12
NVIDIA driver from /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver. The driver works, and my
X server log looks fine. I've also enabled the required extensions in the xorg.conf
config file, both manually and later using nvidia-xconfig.

The nvidia.ko driver is loaded at bootup using /boot/loader.conf.

the compiz binary links to:

libXcomposite.so.1 => /usr/local/lib/libXcomposite.so.1 (0x280ac000)

libm.so.3 => /usr/local/lib/compat/libm.so.3 (0x29065000)

and glxinfo seems fine:

ziltoid% glxinfo | head
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig,
GLX_SGIX_pbuffer, GLX_SGI_video_sync, GLX_SGI_swap_control,
GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_NV_float_buffer,

However, when attempting to start compiz(both 0.7.4 and 0.6.0) using:
/usr/local/compiz/bin/compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp &

the screen flickers slowly, and becomes sluggish and non-responsive, with compiz.real
taking up 100% cpu, which probably means it's not using any hardware to do its rendering.

I've spent a couple of days searching the forums, but to no avail...
