Re: nvidia drivers worth installing?



How are you determining that X is consuming alot of CPU?  Is it
consistantly 100% or just higher than without beryl?

Without Beryl, X server is usually hovering around 5% of cpu (spikes
when firefox or thunderbird activity happens) but with Beryl running
it consumes lot of CPU (up to 100%). I am running
beryl-core-0.1.4-2.fc6.x86_64. Also, i have attached the X log file
(Xorg.0.log.gz) with Beryl running.

Thanks
