SiS6326, RH6.0 & black KDE desktop background
Posted on 1999-12-07
I have just installed a used Pentium 133KHz Motherboard and a new Video card - SiS6326 with 4MB RAM. I actually have booted up and have attempted to set up XF86Config. I am runing KDE for my window manager.
I have set it up the best I can figure, seeing the SiS6326 is in the card list, and I actually get multiple resolutions, but the background of the KDE Desktop is Black. I do not have it set to black. Also, the menus are black, and unreadable, though the icons display. The Screen Saver works fine, but after I move the mouse, the background is now what is left of the screensaver.
When I start X, the screeen used to go gray all over, then show blue (the background color), then the icons came up. Now the screen goes gray in small strips with white in between.
I have read of a problem like this, but cannot find the comment anywhere. Can anyone help?
