Thanks for answering, Didi.
Well, I'm not on my computer right now, but I'm quite sure, that direct 
rendering is on.
My real question is, might it be issue with 64 bit system? Should I'll 
try to install i686 and try to get it working there or it doesn't matter 
at all?

>> Hello everyone. Well I have problem with my 64 bit system. I have Nvidia 8400GS card with driver installed and enabled (it means that I get glxinfo and glxgears output), but compositing or any 3D games don't work (some openGL error). But at the same time I gan run simple 3D applications like glxgears. Also Nvidia driver starts correctly on startup (logo comes up) and compositing is enabled in xorg.conf.
