Title: xwindows show garbled display
Post by: digitalbob on January 03, 2007, 04:12:59 AM
the windows are not drawn correctly. maybe it is not redrawing itself. only when i hover over the command buttons they become visible. while scrolling through texts it does not display the text correctly. on the menus only when  
I hover over the items they become visible. this problem was present also while installing. I am using Redhat Linux Fedora Core 3.

Hi


May be its resolution problem...Try to change MODES settings in
/etc/X11/XF86Config file



(http://Section "Screen"        Identifier "Screen0"        Device     "Videocard0"        Monitor    "Monitor0"        DefaultDepth     24        SubSection "Display"                Depth     24                Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480")


Change ur Modes from

Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480

to

Modes "800X600", Try to change it...........and let us know.

                            { i.e lower resolution }
