Default Problem instal Beryl w/ATI Radeon Graphic Card

I hope this hasn't been asked too many times. I did a search but couldn't find the answer. I'm trying to install Beryl on an HP computer running Feisty with a ATI Radeon Graphic Card ( RV280 [Radeon 9200 SE]). I've been trying it using the great instruction page on this site that sounded like it should be easy. My problem is when I type in
Code:
glxinfo | grep vendor
, I get back:
Code:
X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  142 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Serial number of failed request:  16
  Current serial number in output stream:  17
What the heck am I doing wrong?

What kind of system do you use? How much RAM does it have?
Can you post the output of

Thanks. I checked on those links, but they seem to be talking about systems with integrated graphics where mine is on it's own card. Where do I change/check my set resolution?

You can change the resolution in your desktop's control center. If that doesn't work, you can modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
