Default Beryl w/ 8800 GTS on beta drivers?

Can anyone run Beryl with this setup (or an 8800 GTX?) I get miscellaneous forms of crash including stalls of the desktop, but have not once had it actually work as with the prior card. I have not tried aiglx/xgl, just the same setup as my prior card (7800 GT) using the nvidia drivers for compositing.

I assume this will be fixed by the next driver release, but since we have no ETA on that I am just wondering if this can be done.

I see that new drivers have been released on the 8th (ugh.. now I'm really a moron for not checking nvidia site before my distro, which I fully admit), but, am wondering if they resolve these issues. Guess I'll find out soon just kind of curious.

Am aware of those drivers, those are the ones that have several problems, at least with the 8800 series, was hoping there was something new but apparently not yet.

Any news on better drivers for the 8800 series? I get nothing but total system hard lock when I try to start X.

Is there any interest in bug reports for the 9742 drivers?

Regards,

holoman
