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.

Reproducible: Always
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:
Version: 4.0.3-9


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?
