Works for me (ATI M4 and Matrox G200); unless it's a local problem, it's a bug
in the X driver for your graphics card. Reassigning.
If this helps, here is the hardware:
Motherboard: SystemBoard M748LMRT ,
Video: included in motherboard, SYS 620 which uses 8Mb of RAM
256 Mb of RAM
P II 400 MHz CPU
I have an idea what the problem might be, but I don't have the hardware
to test with. I will need a copy of your /etc/X11/XF86Config, your
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4, and your /var/log/XFree86.0.log to investigate the
issue deeper. Please attach those files via our file attachment link below.

Attached the 3 files. I have tried the Mandrake version (sorry) but gave the
same behaviour. Will revert to Red Hat.
Hi M. Harris,
Any news about what is wrong with the setup,
I wonder if this is related to bug 46805?
The provided config files are not not from Xconfigurator or anaconda. May I
suggest that you back up your configuration and try Xconfigurator (from updates
or rawhide at ftp.redhat.com) instead? I would also use just 1024x768x16bpp
(nothing else, as a test).
Thanks for looking into this. The problem might be related to bug 46805.
I have tried the suggestion,1024x768x16bpp with XConfigurator and restarted the
XWindow server. Still the same result.
I want to add that starting the Xconfig in a XTerm, I got a warning:
Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".
It seams that all other apps show this warning in the Xterm (I did not use command
line to start apps before). I do not know what the system is expecting.
It is not a warning. RENDER extension missing is just information.
Harmless information, ignore it.
*** Bug 53995 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Steps to fix:
1) Run "Xconfigurator --preferxf4"
2) After that, edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
3) In the device section add the following 2 lines
If the problem goes away, which I believe it will, let me know and we
can fine tune the troubleshooting. If the problem is gone in a newer version,
also please let me know as I do not have this hardware.
The above suggested settings have been made the default in rawhide.
This problem goes away for me with XFree 4.1,
either OpenLinux 3.1.1 or RedHat 7.2
