Expected Results: No translucent windows
Even installing rawhide1 to RH7 produced the same functionality in X when
Try using the latest rawhide version of XFree86-4.0.2-9. The 3.3.6 package

running the XFree86 version 4 rather than the version 3? Is there a way to

rpm -ivh Glide*
rpm -Fvh *.rpm

If it works for you, I can then close the bug report. Thanks, and good
Ftp'd to the mentioned site and grabbed the XFree86-4.0.2-9 files and did
rpm -Fvh *.rpm
restarted X server and all is working.
Thanks for the quick fix!
