Are you using the non-free binary drivers from ATI? I couldn't get them to

Maybe this can help:

It helps in that it confirms Michael's suspicions. FGLRX drivers simply
don't support Composite and won't work with AIGLX. For the time being,
Xgl is the only option for beryl/compiz on recent ATI cards.

If the opensource radeon drivers support your card, you're in luck (as I
am), because they will work just fine with AIGLX and Composite. Indeed,
my 5 year old laptop performs quite well with beryl's fancy effects on
its 16MB radeon 7500 mobility.

The beryl website says "Please note: ATI Cards : Depending on your card you
may find that you can use the ati/radeon driver with AIGLX. If you
experience problems then you may need to use Xgl with the fglrx Driver.".

I guess it's just some cards that don't work. I have a x800

I believe AIGLX is included by default, so it is the more standard

XGL.

that's weird, I have an ATI radeon and I use AIGLX on Edgy.
