Description of problem:
The graphic installation is ok, setup ok, my card is supported, but when X
starts, there is a lot of verticals bar every 3mm, that make the fonts and
icons bad (unreadable)... there is no errors in log file, and also all seems
work well, only those bars...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. All ok, when try if all work, i can see those bars
Actual Results: when X start, at boot or manually, i always see those
transparent vertical bars that delete the fonts under it and the icons.
Expected Results: i want only use X for develop, no need 3d acceleration, just
only a simple graphic mode in 1024x768...
Xfree 4.2.0-8 (from installation CD)
Kernel 2.4.18-3 (from installation CD)
kernel 2.4.18-10 (from up2date)
I tried to upgrade the DRI with the last version, but nothing change...
Notebook Compaq presario 2813TC (from 2800 series) with ATI Mobility Radeon
7500 M7 32MB ram DDR, 30GB, video 14" 1024x768
i check on google.com, there is a lot of peoples that have the same problem as
me with redhat, mandrake and freebsd, also with compaq (as mine) and asus.
Seems a problem with Xfree, not a problem with redhat, but i need only a X for
develop, no need 3d accelerator or something so, just only a video in 1024x768
16bit is ok, if you can find a solution or just tell me how to configure a VGA
that can work.
I used xf86config:
Radeon 7500 Mobility M7
nothing change... also changed monitor:
Generic Laptop monitor 1024x768
Generic Laptop monitor 800x600
Generic Laptop monitor 640x480
Generic VGA monitor
.. and others that i forgot...

happening on, there isn't any way to easily fix it. Please report

I do not have access to a Radeon Mobility M7 laptop.
Defering bug report until problem is fixed by upstream XFree86 or
