Stripes in my Virtual Terminal
1 Attachment(s)
Hi All,

since some months i have got stripes in my Virtual Terminals.
Under my Xsession there aren't stripes.
I didn't find any strange error messages in my logs.

When i start the Xsession with the vesa driver instead of the nvidia driver, i didn't get any stripes too.

Any Ideas?

bye Markus

Re: Stripes in my Virtual Terminal
I'm afraid that I don't see any obvious difference between your 3 screenshots. Can you take a picture of the entire display showing the same content with the two different drivers?

Re: Stripes in my Virtual Terminal
The left Picture and the right picture consists the stripes.
The middle picture is ok.
You have to zoom into the Pictures. Therefor you can see the stripes
on the rihgt picture better instead of the left picture.
There are weakly stripes horizontal in the letters.
The letters on the right and left pictures goes from white to black, but in the middle picture the letters are only white.

Sorry for the poor pictures. I will upload some better pictures until next week.
I have to get the camera of my girl friend.

Re: Stripes in my Virtual Terminal
imgbox.de is not responding ....

It's light, but if you look closely, you can see them. Each letter is stipped white-gray-white-gray.

The stripes are horizontal

Really weird!

Re: Stripes in my Virtual Terminal
Does this problem persist with an official Debian kernel as well?
Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?

Re: Stripes in my Virtual Terminal
I tried it with a custom Kernel 2.6.18 and 2.6.20.
I am not sure at which time i got this trouble.

I tried more than one driver from Nvidia.com.

I think this Problem started after any Nvidia Driver.

At the beginning i got this Laptop, it did work.
I did install my own custom Kernel and remember that my Linux Driver
also worked fine. But at sometime, maybe after a Nvidia Installation, it did break.
Maybe some of the older Nvidia driver do broken something.

I can remember that i had got more than 4 Nvidia Drivers,

I tried to uninstall all i find of Nvidia and installed again, but it didn't solved this.

I have got Debian Etch.

bye Markus
