     Hold on a bit.  Zitat von Ano Nymous <justiceftw@xxxxxxxxx> has yet to
show us any kernel messages, so we don't have a clue what's going on.  Or,
rather, we have several possibilities with no way to distinguish which one
might be the real problem.

     How about mentioning which card you have?  They do not all have the same,
or even similar, characteristics.  How about some kernel messages from your
system, as well as the X log messages about the card?

     It definitely is not.  I would recommend not following up to this list,
but you and/or Mr. Hluchnik are welcome to email me directly.  A more
appropriate place would be one of the LINUX lists or one of the lists for X.org
or XFree86, as the case may be.

     What is "incognito" in this context?

     Which X (i.e., X.org or XFree86) are you using and which version of it?
Did you ever configure by running "Xorg -configure" if you're running X.org?
(There's an equivalent thing to run for XFree86, but it has been so long since
I last did that that I don't remember exactly what it is.)

     At a minimum, you need to
	a) identify the X11 package and version that you are using,
	b) identify the operating system and version that you are using, and
	c) state the hardware configuration you are using.

     I can't imagine why you chose a tor list to post questions about LINUX
or X11.
