In RedHat 7.1 along with mandrake 8.0, most images have some sort of
multicolored, garbled, corrupted look. Some images such as icons on the
desktop do not have this corrupted look but all destkop background images
do along with most images on web pages (especially background images) and
some other varius images that you see. The mouse is also offset to the
right about half of an inch. Some times it has a bunch of gray dots
forming a rectangle. The rectangle moves along with the mouse and the top
center of it orients with the tip of the mouse cursor. You can not move
the mouse cursor any farther to the left then the left edge of the gray
blob that overlays the mouse cursor. You can move the mouse past the
right edge of the screen the same amount that you cannot move to the left
side. Neither of these problems were experienced with mandrake 7.2--the
only other distribution I've ever got to work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run X
Actual Results: corrupted graphics and a mousing area that is offset to
the right from the screen image approximately 1/2 inch
Expected Results: graphics to look like they are supposed to and the
mousing surface to be alligned with the display.
Athlon t-bird, 256 mb kingmax pc-133 tinybga, S3 ViperII (savage2000
chipset), logitech optical wheel mouse, generic 15" monitor. Everything
is perfectly stable and with a little skill you can learn to operate the
mouse "correctly", but especially when viewing web sites, the graphical
corruption to images makes it impossible.
Ok, please try the updated version of XFree86 on my personal ftp space at:
This contains some fixes for Savage based hardware. If it fixes the problem
for you, please close the bug report. Does it solve the problem?
thanks!! updating Xfree86 worked!
