Hi,

A couple of weeks ago I got the ATI proprietary drivers working fine with my Radeon 9550. Today I uninstalled them to see if I might get Beryl working with the open source drivers.

Here's some info:

And here's what I get when I try to run beryl:

Code:
Window manager warning: Lost connection to the display ':0.0';
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the window manager.

No RandR extension

What on earth is that RandR extension thing? Any ideas?

Thanks!
