Beryl + Ubuntu Edgy

I've got, finally, my nVidia GeForce 5500 video card and yesterday set it up to allow using those fancy 3D efects with Beryl, the already-known rotating cube, shaking windows while hiding, popuping windows while showing are now working. I spend at last 3 hours setting it up, most of the problems where related to version mistmatch between nVidia Xorg modules and nVidia kernel modules, however after installing -generic kernel image everything seems to work.

I still need to set more features to Xorg to improve its performance.
