Odd behaviuor with 'sabayon aiglx'

Having to reinstall due to a problem I thought I would try 'sabayon aiglx' instead of 'xgl'.
Live cd ran great! Alas when installed and booted up something was very wrong, window/screen was totally unresponsive except for a wierd effect of zooming when clicking the right mouse button (looked like someone was kicking the screen from behind). Only the 3 fingers saved the day,reverted back to xgl and a repeat of the earlier problem, sigh!


PS I hate coming on this forum to just look for help or to complain,so far people have been very helpfull (espec. cvill64 :D ). Its greatly appreciated.

lol, its no problem, but you gotta remember that its very experimental software

what is your hardware?

you could try logging in to the fluxbox desktop and in a console type= beryl-manager

then disable zoom and screenshot plugins

these plugins are loaded and make it impossible to open programs in kde
at least to someone like me :)

but anyway, works now!

I dont mind minimalism, but only in my home! I love toys/gadgets etc. :wink:

I'm using a fairly new (middle of the road) set up, GigabyteK8NF mobo with AMD 64 (x1) and a geforce 7600GS graphics card,only 512MB of memory-soon to be rectified.

I had a sneaky suspicion the AIGLX thing wasnt quite up to scratch yet,think I'll leave it alone for now.

Cheers for now.

Hi all,

I really like this distro and did install it since a while without major problem except maybe a knowned bug : firefox throw me out sometimes when i click on a link (it closes itself) :( I did not read something about this on the forum.)

But I wanted first to advise that I have the same problem as Helterskelter by enabling Aiglx, I get a big freeze after disk install and like him, no problem with the live-cd. (I also checked the md5sum, all was fine)

Here is my config : Motherboard Asus A8N-E, Videocard Nvidia Geforce 6600 256 Mo, Processor AMD64 3000+ and 1Ghz of Ram

Hi cvill64, did you have a look at my link above ? Is there a way to manage beryl to work well on my pc config ? I thought it should not be a problem with a nvidia geforce 6600.

I succeeded in installing beryl by following this link for a Debian Sid based distro :

It works fine, so something happened wrong during the install on the harddisk with Sabayon. I hate to disturb people for a such small thing but I would rather continue to use Sabayon ! :wink:

Thanks one more time for your great job until here and thank you in advance for any help or suggestions. It has become finally a pleasure to use gentoo without headhache !

okay, what is going wrong again, I'm so sorry, but refresh my memory, as your card is fully recognized so its fully supported

lol, btw, its conf not con :P so check and make sure its using the nvidia driver in xorg
