Xorg+24-bit depth+ Nvidia driver = No mouse cursor
16-bit+Nvidia=Screen good, mouse cursor invisible
When I launch the X server in 24-bit mode with the Nvidia drivers (tried both 71.76 and 76.76 version), my screen is garbled and it seems like they are overlapping.
When I launch the X server in 16-bit mode with the Nvidia drivers (both the 71.76 and 76.76), my screen is fine and dandy, BUT, the is mouse cursor icon is invisible. I can "see" my mouse moving around because the icons and KDE taskbar are highlighting up and the little mini-icon is bouncing around the invisible mouse cursor.
I've tried 24-bit with all different resolutions. 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600... they all turn the screen garbled. So the 24-bit thing doesn't work with any resolution.
Samsung Syncmaster 930B (analog cable)
So does anybody have any ideas on what is going on? Do you think it would make a difference if I got a DVI cable?
This problem has plagued me with different distros. Mandriva 2006RC2, Kubuntu, Debian, and now SuSE 9.3.
