I already have a xorg.conf on my Mandriva 2008.1 box :mr-green:

I'd be utterly surprised if you didn't, as Mandy 2008.1 does not have xorg 1.5.x and input hotplugging... so a usable xorg.conf is mandatory, unless of course you're using a DE like XFCE4, which can also run (with quite some limitations) on framebuffer.

Did you mean "/etcX11/xorg.conf"? I always had it. Can you run X server without it?

If I turn compiz on, all motions become fine and smooth again, but i have no window decoration then... How do I solve that?

Run once from console

emerald --replace

If you still have no decorations, call "fusion-icon" (or compiz settings directly) and there under effects check the "window decoration" item in.

I had a similar problem on openSuse, so i went to their forum and found a solution. All i needed to do was:


su -
nvidia-xconfig --composite
nvidia-xconfig --render-accel
nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals -d 24


But using compiz isn't a real solution, because it slows the system a bit. It is especially noticeable when playing 3D games like OpenArena.

If only I could fix my graphics problem without using compiz...
