    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/lspci | grep -i vga
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post output here.

    * Its Capital X in X11.

    Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and replace Driver "i810" with "vesa".
    Save file and reboot machine. You must have root privileges to edit that file.

    In case it doesn't work ( X Server doesn't even start sometimes ), just press Alt+Ctrl+F1, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and set "i810" again.

    1.- vesa will be very slow, even on modern machines, so use the driver for your video card (i810)
    2.- beryl/compiz will never work without glx, so, they will not work with vesa (they might work with vesa on aixgl, I don't know, but they will nor perform ok, you surely will not be able to move a window)
    3.- beryl/compiz sometimes has (or had) problem with video players, so, turn off this useless eyecandy while doing tests.

    Start your media player from CLI, for instance MPlayer spits out lots of useful information when invoked from CLI.
