Please help ! ;-)
I just installed the debian linux on a pentium 75 system with 32 MB
RAM and a Trident 9680 , 2MB video card.
Love the OS ! Great job guys !
But I have a small problem...
When I run "startx" from the shell prompt, X11 comes up fine but the
screen is almost unreadable. I (very much by mistake) installed the
patch to emulate WIN 95 (yuck) - but I'm not sure that it matters.
It seems that the X server thinks I have a different display type
(or something) but at any rate let me give you the symptoms :
1. When the screen comes up, it looks like an amiga system
with the video configured wrong.
2. There seems to be VERTICAL lines "missing" -every other
line seems to be missing. very hard to read.
3. When I highlight a selection on the start button, it displays
fine. But anything else on the screen is almost unreadable.
4. When I run xterm, The title bar looks almost fine but, any
text inside the window is unreadable.
You guys probally heard this one a thousand times. I'm actually quite
embarrsed to admit that I'm a UNIX instructor at a tech school in
Long Island, New York. (hee hee hee) We teach Novell UnixWare 3.0.
But that's because we're a Novell / Microsoft School.
