Well I seem to have a problem with my xserver. Other people don't seem to
have such a problem, however. So it's either my setup or the fbdev driver
(valkyrie). Here is the output of startx with the xserver (I am
using a debian glibc 2.1 distribution). The window manager is kwm (kde)
but I am experiencing similar problems with enlightnement, windowmaker,
icewm, etc. although not directly at startup.Any ideas are welcome.Many
other programs are showing this behaviour even if I manage to boot up
a window manager. The strange thing is that I CAN use xserver
without any problems, apart from the MIT-SHM extension is for some reason
missing on this one, plus it is kind of buggy.
