Default beryl/compiz freeze

Hello,
I am using AMD64 3500+ with 1gb ram and Fedora Core 6.
I also have GeForce 7300GS with 1.0-9742 driver as video card.
I am trying to use beryl/compiz/xgl, but soon after I launch them, the computer freezes(I've seen many posts talking about this freeze up but they all said the mouse moves while for me, mouse doesn't move either) and I have to shut down the computer by force.
Also, I noticed in nVidia X Server Settings, the computer freezes when I try to view OpenGL/GLX information. Well, for further information, I tried adding one line by one to xorg.conf to see which line is causing the freeze up and it was when I added Load "freetype" line the computer froze when trying to view OpenGL/GLX information. However, with this line removed, although it doesn't freeze when viewing OpenGL/GLX information, it still freezes within a couple of minutes after I launch beryl or compiz.
I have attached the nvidia-bug-report.log file that I created manually by running nvidia-bug-report.sh.

Does this problem persist with 1.0-9746 ?
Does this only reproduce while using beryl/compiz/xgl ?
Does this reproduce if you're not using the TripleBuffer & NvAGP options?

Thanks,
Lonni

Well, that driver has that problem on 8800, but I wasn't sure if it was the driver or the card, apparently the driver? Anyhow, you can use the 9631 driver which is what I'd recommend you do, there really isn't any reason to run the 9742 driver on that card.

I'm still looking for 9746.. not up on nvidia site guess I should be looking here, not that familiar with site yet sure I'll find it somewhere..

EDIT: duh, sticky update, of course.. sorry couldn't tell because it doesn't show when it's been edited just when posts are added.

With 1.0-9746 driver installed, and with TripleBuffer and NvAGP options removed while adding Load "freetype", there is no freezup when opening OpenGL/GLX information. But still with beryl loaded, although it manages to stay alive longer, eventually within 5 minutes, it freezes. I am using only beryl/compiz/xgl that would require OpenGL, so I am not sure if the problem will show with other programs but I think it will.
I am attaching the new nvidia-bug-report.log file that I managed to generate with beryl active before the freeze-up.
Thanks for your help.

Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?

I am not really sure if I am using the latest BIOS..
I have Compaq SR1830NX with asus mb A8AE-LE motherboard.
As far as I know, it is HP's proprietary and there is no info on this model on ASUS website and neither is there on HP website except a very general one that doesn't really tell anything other than the model number. I wasn't able to find if there are BIOS updates available on this motherboard. Also, HP has it locked down, releasing no information.
Can you help on this matter?

You'd need to contact HP about your BIOS.

Thanks,

I've had a lot of freezes with my 7300GS card when using opengl and such, 9746 seem to have solved this issue, no hangup in two days, long time since.

Thanks for the replies.
henz, I don't have such command as gnome-xgl-switch where do you get this?
fldc, 9746 driver doesn't seem to fix my problem. Would you share your xorg.conf code? And any other particular setting you've done?
