    Default Big Desktop on Beryl+Xgl SuSE 10.2

    After much experimentation and with a lot of help from these forums and the SuSE Beryl howto, I have Beryl running in single head mode.

    As soon as I enable "big desktop" however X refuses to start, but commenting out the line:

    Option "DesktopSetup" "horizontal"
    in the device section of xorg.conf produces a fully working single head system.

    there is no obvious error in Xorg.0.log with the exception of:

    (EE) AIGLX error: dlsym for __driCreateNewScreen_20050727 failed (/usr/lib/dri/ undefined symbol: __driCreateNewScreen_20050727)
    (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
    which is present even though I have:

    Section "ServerFlags"
            Option "AIGLX" "off"
    The system is SuSE 10.2 with the 8.32.5 driver and the X11/XGL/OpenSUSE_10.2 rpms.

    A couple of odd points:

    In the fully working single head configuration,

    ps -A|grep xgl
    Gives nothing under compiz, but beryl-xgl under beryl.

    The graphics card is a X300, and once running everything seems very stable in either single head/Beryl or big desktop Metacity.

    It appears that the cause of the problem is that Xgl has a maximum desktop resolution of 2048.

    If I set the screen resolution to 1024x768 then big desktop works fine.
