I forgot to apply the above mentioned trick, testing it now (without Beryl as it certainly hangs X). All mentioned cards are GeForce Go, which gives me high hope. This is my current configuration:
- Linux SMP kernel 22.214.171.124.
- Latest BIOS (Acer Aspire 5583WXMi, which is ironnically too new to have its Windows drivers downloadable on Acer homepage).
- Workaround xorg.con options applied just to be sure: AIGLX Off, Composite Off.
- 1.0.9742 driver with a GeForce Go 7300.
