Description of problem:
When i startx I get alot of scramble on the graphics and its hard to make
anything out. I have a a Diamod multimedia Monster Fusion graphics card
with 16M of ram. It works great with rh Linux 7.0. When setup it probes
for my video card driver it always pics voodoo3as the graphics card(this
is also that case in Win98/2000 so i think it's just a generic voodoo3
card). It uses the Voodoo3 drivers when i select Diamod Monster fusion.
Anyway it really scambles the graphics. If i log in text based it works
grate. I startx the graphics get scambled. I close the x windows system
and the graphics are still scamble even when in the text prompt mode or
just rebooting the computer. Anyway 7.0 works fine so i'm wondering if it
has something to to do with the X server. I saw severl bug reports
similer to mine but not exactlly like it.
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: get scrambled graphics
Expected Results: X should start just like it should
It doesn't give any sort of error. It is just to scambly to see anything.
The video card is actully a monster fusion(voodoo) not quit shure what i was thinking.
Anyway that would make this a duplicate of bug 39148 cause he had the same problem.
