    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
    Code:
    top
    ?

    I really shouldn't have a resource problem.

    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.
