I'm not sure what's suppose to work right now but on trying to run compiz or beryl, I get the following BadAlloc error:
atippett@actlap:~$ compiz --replace
X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)

/usr/bin/compiz.real: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
/usr/bin/compiz.real: Failed to manage screen: 0
/usr/bin/compiz.real: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
Well, I fetched, compiled libpciaccess, avivo...
It works! Well, sort of. The refresh rate is set by default to 58 Hz no matter what I can think of doing in xorg.conf, and causes a very jittery screen. Using the KDE option panel, changing the refresh rate to 75 Hz fixes the problem. There's also a light blue box right in the middle of the screen; it's 64 pixels by 64 pixels. It's semi-transparent, I can see the stuff behind it, but not very much. I'd say about 70% opaque.
Oh, and my resolution is 1280x1024.
Anybody have any idea as to what's causing the blue box? (And the vertical refresh, too )
EDIT: Switching from 2.6.22-ck1 to 2.6.22-gentoo-r5 (and having tons of troubles with 2.6.22-suspend2-r1 in between ) fixes the blue box. Weird. Still, I need to manually set the refresh rate. Does anybody know how to force this in xorg.conf?
