Gentoo Beryl


i'm using these 2 guides:

nr 1

nr 2

too install beryl on Gentoo2006.1. Just for the fun of it. Now when i edit these lines in my xorg.conf

Section "Device"
        Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "Composite"   "enable"
and i execute:

xdpyinfo | grep Composite
it does absolutely nothing. Now my question is, in my xorg.conf (xorg 7.1) there is no device section, only graphic device section and inputdevice section. So where do i place these 2 options? The guide isn't really clear in that part.

If you don't have a section in your xorg config, simply add the section and only place those lines in it. (I haven't used xorg 7.1 yet, but this works fine with 7.01.)


beryl, gentoo
