Angry Display problems with XFree


hello everybody,
I have a sligth problem configuring my XFree86 for an ATI Mach 64 graphic adapter (PCI).
There are always strange lines mooving on the screen while using KDE.
It lookes like this:

I don't think that it has anything to do with my monitor, because the cursor looks allright if I move it over the stripes.

I'd be glad for an answer...

does that happen in another Desktop Environment/Window Manager (such as Gnome or XFCE) as well?

it also helps if you can tell us your XFree version. Do you have the latest version?

I can also suggest to have a look at http://gatos.sourceforge.net . They have specialized on ATI drivers (generally they're considered better than the "originals" by XFree itself). They're mostly for AIWs but maybe there's also one for the Mach64.

Thanks for your relpy,
I have now been able to fix the problem myself. It was some XF86 setup error. So Ijust booted in KNOPPIX an d copied the config to my deian system. And BANG.... It worked flawlessly!!!

Why doesn't one ever solve problems with sutch easy solutions?

Bye,bye
