Ok, this is my conf, which works fine when I'm running a 7800 GT but does not work with my 8800 GTS, so it should work for you with the 7300

Default Re: beryl/compiz freeze

henz, I didn't have fedora-xgl-settings and xgl-hardware-list installed.
I just installed them now, and ran gnome-xgl-switch --enable-xgl like you told me but I had to give one more argument: --set (option) or --auto, so I did gnome-xgl-switch --enable-xgl --auto but with this I can't even run X. I had to do gnome-xgl-switch --disable-xgl to get X working again.

xanas3712, thanks for the source. I tried that, but no good news.

One more thing, I tried 9631 driver also, but with this, I can't even start Beryl for there is no extension. And when I installed 9746 over it, the driver went back to 9631 everytime I rebooted, so I uninstalled 9631 and tried to installed 9746 from the base, but this didn't work. It only worked with any previous version of driver installed. So.. I installed 9742 again and then 9746 over it, now 9746 stays, but still freezes with Beryl. For this reason, I am suspecting that although it says the version is 9746 in the nvidia configuration window, maybe it isn't installed correctly.

Default Re: beryl/compiz freeze

I took a look inside /usr/lib64/xorg/modules directory.
I don't really know about xorg.conf but to me it makes sense that for all modules to work, there should be corresponding so file for each of them.
And since I have [Load "i2c", Load "bitmap" etc..] I should have libi2c.so, libbitmap.so, etc in the directory path specified in the xorg.conf file don't I? But there are several files I am missing and those files indeed show up on google.
Am I right about that I should have libbitmap.so, libfreetype.so, libtype1.so, libdrm.so files? (these are the files I don't have, but I have some others that are not listed in Section "Module").
And if so, where do I get these files?
