    X-"crash" at startup


    As a "follow-up" to the Debian + X-window topic i post my next problem.

    After that i finally got x running i experience one nasty problem:

    after rebooting the comp the system starts x and the the screen looks something like this (with colors of course):

    \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \
    \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \
    \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \
    \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \
    \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \

    Just twist it about 25 degrees to the left a there you have my screen.
    The spaces between the lines is where the login window appears (i suppose). Beleive me when i tell u, this looks nasty, as i forgot to tell you that the picture is super distorted also.

    Help ......

    Did you set the horizontal/vertical refresh rates properly? Check /etc/XF86Config and scroll down to the part about refresh rates and make sure they are set properly for your monitor.
