Default Beryl crashes X

Weird thing: I'm using compiz since a while without any issues but have some trouble to get beryl going. The server crashes without any log entries as soon as I start beryl or beryl-manager.

Debian testing AMD64
100.14.03 beta for Linux x86-64 in Twinview mode
Beryl (tried various versions incl SVN)

Any ideas?

The first one is get rid of the beta driver and use 9755.
2. remove all compiz packages even XGL too
3. check out my xorg.conf and compare it with yours.
4. if everything went right you would have beryl running and the well known black window bug!!
5. go here http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&postcount=255 and tune beryl and xorg.conf with this guide post!

I also experienced the same thing recently (beryl and all 3D apps would crash the X server). Since I removed Debian's nvidia-glx and installed the beta driver, an xserver-xorg-core upgrade overwrote nvidia's libglx.so with its own. The solution is to reinstall nvidia's driver each time xserver-xorg-core is updated.

This shouldn't happen if you use Debian's nvidia-glx package, but then you're stuck with the version in the repository.
