Question Some screensavers appear as top-half-screen - ?


I'm using slack 10.2, Kernel 2.6.17, Kde 3.5.3 and just set up direct rendering with i810.

I tried the screensavers that come with kde packages, almost all run well except few like "Euphoria" which appears on top-half of my screen.

My xorg.conf is the following:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier " Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Files"
RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"

Section "Module"

What is the problem with my xorg.conf, what euphoria requires that I dont have, any special option I should add to xorg.conf for euphoria to go full screen?

One more thing.. I also noticed that when you install fedora core it enables the direct rendering and Euphoria runs full screen but after kernel upgrade it runs half screen, that made me wondering if the problem could be related to kernel version since xorg.config wasn't changed.

Did anyone else have this problem?

yes, i also experienced that one and it's kind of annoying, i was able to make it fullscreen by installing the dri module from but after installing the said module, another problem will come up... trying to resize the resolution of X while running it is a disaster... that's why warcraft3 wont let me play in fullscreen...
