xwindows show garbled display
« 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






Change ur Modes from

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

to

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

                            { i.e lower resolution }
