another video driver problem :(

Oh... then I may suspect the way xorg is built?

But no, xorg is not kernel dependent in any way.

What do you get as /etc/xorg.conf after running

# nvidia-xconfig --composite

In case there is any question, ilia_kr, this request is directed to you. 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?

You could install emerald, the windows decorator for compiz.

 

After you install it, launch the CompizConfig Settings Manager and select Window decorations. In the text box next to Command, type "emerald".

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...

Did you consider Openbox?

It works fine here with both Gnome and XFCE4, and probably KDE4 as well.
