Default Re: beryl black windows bug

I whole heartedly agree.

What annoys me the most is that I specifically choose a laptop with an Nvidia graphics card because I thought that would make the graphics experience better for me using Linux with Beryl.

I guess this really is the best reason why you should buy your hardware from manufactures that provide open source drivers. I can understand that Nvidia is desperately trying to ensure that their cards work perfectly on Vista, but that doesn't help me one little bit, I use Linux, not Vista. I still feel stupid though, I was lulled into a false sense of security by my past experiences with Nvidia, which used to be the best choise for Linux users wanting good graphics performance.

Now please, make my graphics card work properly please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW for anyone else with this problem 9755 doesn't fix it, though the graphics card performance appears to be much faster. In AIGLX rendering mode it is pretty much usable, if a bit on the slow side sometimes.
