Beryl works fine on my machine with the 1.0-9629 Nvidia driver. I have
two suggestions though:
1. We probably should have a port for the emerald themes. I think Beryl
actually has a compilation of themes available on their site. If I find
some time I can whip it up.
2. Would it make more sense to have a Beryl meta-port? I can't imagine
that anyone would just install beryl-core and not beryl-plugins,
beryl-settings, and beryl-manager. I suppose it isn't that difficult to
install each port individually, but I figure that most people would want
to install them all at once.
Other than that, it works great! Thanks for the work on beryl and X.org!
