Which suggests that you might need to install a proprietary driver for your card.
My system is complete rubbish with the generic NV driver that will install with most distros + it also won't let me run anything above 60 hz refresh until I get the "proper" nvidia driver install. Then it's excellent. 1600x1200@85hz makes all the difference.
As for having stuff written in "english" instead of nerd/geek ? Ha! not a hope in hell there my friend. It's one of my "soap box" pet hates.
The "great and good" of the developer world can do miracles with code, but they can't write docs for s**t!
Oh and I don't know whether it's a good or bad thing, but Sabayon is based on Gentoo. Unfortunately, the gentoo documentation is some of the best out there (readability wise that is).
I'm only guessing, but if your "kit" is up to date, then once you've got the proprietary driver (Nvidia or ATi) installed then it should "do the business" with Beryl. Just have a google for "beryl screenshots" and see what comes up. Also, don't forget, just because a graphics card as loads of RAM, it's not guaranteed that the RAM is quick! Why do you think gamers pay top dollar for the latest and greatest?
