AIGLX and NVidia (9746) on Mandriva One Gnome

Hi all,

I got some problems getting the 3d-desktop with aiglx to work. I've already searched forums and howtos, but none could bring me any further.

The problem is, when enabling aiglx in the MCC, I'm missing all the window-decorations and no 3d-effects at all. I installed the same on my laptop (with intel graphics) and everything worked out of the box just fine, so I guess it has to do with my xorg.conf.

Besides that, 3d acceleration / OpenGL is working fine, so the driver (9746) is installed and working correctly.

My xorg.conf:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Fri Dec 15 10:12:14 PST 2006

# File generated by XFdrake (rev 57713)
