i went to work with my lenny-distro. could not find anything wrong. so i
got rid of my 'old' gnutella that i compiled starting with the very
oldfashioned command ./Configure &&.
Instead of that command i used @./build.sh && and, behold, all was
normal again. this explains nothing I guess. I derive only some hunches
out of this.
your command: (in the new situation):
steef@lenny1:~$ xdpyinfo | grep -E 'resol|dimens'
dimensions: 1440x900 pixels (411x263 millimeters)
resolution: 89x87 dots per inch
.......gives nothing abnormal. before (i tried it out already) it gave
me a resolution of 800x600; completely out of range.
before that i experimented with *their* nvidia-driver (installed bu
doing sgfxi -c in /usr/local/bin) and i experienced some problems with
anti-aliasing my utf-8 system fonts. maybe that 's the heart of this
slight trouble. however: it was temporary a real mess.
