   this is a little dumb, but I can't get beryl to start.. :(
   I am running freebsd 6.2 and upgraded xorg to 7.2 a while ago,
   I googled some and read/modified some files, such as rc.conf, xorg.conf,
but not gnome2 (is this the problem??). I thought beryl-manager is a window
manager so I added "exec /usr/local/bin/beryl-manager" in my .xinitrc file.
Launch "startx" but nothing. xorg.log didn't complain anything. I guess I
miss something here...

can someone teach me how to run beryl from a more introductory point of
view?? Thank you for your help.
