I have recently updated nVidia driver (livna rpm x86_64 Kernel Module
1.0-9746 , Dual Core AMD X2) on FC6 hoping to see some improvement in
performance with Beryl. But, unfortunately i could not find any
improvements in that area. I have been running into the issue where Xorg
would go nuts with CPU when Beryl is running. So, i have disabled the
Beryl. Here is what lspci tells me about my graphics card.

00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express
Bridge (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA])

Wondering if the issue is purely related to nVidia's driver (C51 PCI
Express Bridge) or it is the combination of Beryl and nVidia.
