I installed Redhat 7.1 on my computer without any apparant problems. (The
only relavant sys info I suspect is that I use a Voodoo3 16mb graphics
card.) Whenever I scroll, or move a window inch long dotted lines appear
at random places on the screen where I'm scrolling or moving a window.
They don't appear to have any real order. If I continue to move, or scroll
the lines build up.. more and more, until eventually it is impossible to
read anything. Any help would be appreciated. If I left out something
important, please contact me.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login (either gnome or KDE)
2.open either a web browser (any) or a file manager (/home, whatever)
3.Scroll.. keep scrolling and the lines become more and more plentiful. OR
drag the window around by the title bar at the top. (same effect as
Actual Results: Inch long dotted lines began appearing at random places
in the window I was scrolling in.. or moving. The window did scroll, or
move, but the dotted lines did appear.
Expected Results: The inch long dotted lines should not have appeared.
Voodoo3 16mb graphics card. Running at 800X600 resolution.
I have these too but fewer in number....I could not determine why/when they show up.
I only have them in konsole not in other applications that open windows...it may be a
konsole problem. (Using GeForce 256 with nv driver and RH7.1)

To the original poster: Please attach your log and config also, and soon
if possible. I will be freezing XFree86 real soon now, so if there is
something needing fixing, I'll need the info quickly.
To umar: Please file a separate bug report for your nvidia card as it
is likely a similar but different issue, and when this bug gets closed
your bug info will be lost.
To both: Please try my latest XFree86 packages from:
Numerous 3dfx and other fixes are in it over the seawolf release. The
current release (-14) stands a good chance at being an official errata
release, so I recommend that you beat on it and report back.
Closing bug report do to lack of reproduceability and lack of response
from initial bug reporter.
