Xfree86 divides screen into vertical strips...!?
When I run X it divides the screen into 4 vertical strips, each of which shows only the leftmost portion of the screen, and only about the top half of it.
Changing color depth from 24 to 16 (using "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86") reduces the number of strips to 2.
Also the mouse (which is only a big square, not a pointer) can go off the right and bottom edges of the screen and down below it a significant distance.
What's going on???
Any help greatly appreciated.
