I've been running my pc with fluxbox for a while now, and I recently updated xfree (emerge xfree -u). Now, when I start up X the screen is scrambled and you cannot make out anything. The xfree login screen is messed up too. There are no errors when I start up x and I haven't changed anything in my XF86Config file. Also, once I run startx, I cannot get back to a virtual console by using CTRL-ALT-Backspace. The only thing that the pc responds to is CTRL-ALT-DEL.

Have you check /var/log/XFree86.0.log ?
It may contain error message.
Check it's tail and write out here last 10 line.

And,
write out hardware what you are using.
write out "device" section and "monitor" section in XF86Config. (without commentline)

Quote:
I cannot get back to a virtual console by using CTRL-ALT-Backspace.

In /etc/X11/XF86Config, uncomment this option
Code:
    Option "XkbDisable"

in "InputDevice" keyboard section.
Instantly, may fix the problem.

Here are the last 10 lines of my /var/log/Xfree86.0.log.
Code:

(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse1: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
(**) Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
(**) Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
(**) Mouse1: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse1: Buttons: 5
(II) Keyboard "Keyboard1" handled by legacy driver
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse1" (type: MOUSE)
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/, removing from

Driver "Accel" <- No need this line.
Instead of it, add Identifier description which like this example,
Code:

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "Diamond Stealth II"
 ~ snip ~

and write out Module section and Files section too,please.

I changed the Screen section. Here is what my XF86Config-4 file looks like now. And I'm still getting a bad looking screen and CTRL-ALT-Backspace doesn't work either. The screen is scrambled and sort of slanted. I just can't figure out what's going on.
Code:

Section "Module"
    Load        "dbe"   # Double buffer extension

    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension

The /var/log/Xfree86.0.log still looks the same. Let me know if you want to see more of that.

:( Hmm... It seems varid settings.

BTW, what version of xfree package are you using now?
Write out the resultof this,
Code:
qpkg -I -v | grep xfree

and the version before update it, please.

http://www.xfree86.org/4.2.1/rendition4.html#4
By this document, colordepth 24 is not supported at rendition driver.
Let try change DefaultColorDepth in Screen section of XF86Config-4.

If cause of problem is not in X...
Let try simple .xinitrc.

Backup existent .xinitrc and make transient .xinitrc,
Code:
exec twm

only this description, then startx.

bash: qpkg: command not found

I'm not sure about what you are wanting me to do here. Could you explain it a little more? Where is the .xinitrc file?

I tried this and have tried it before. I still get the same scrambled picture. Also, these were the same settings that I had with my previous version of xfree.

Ok...I figured out how to do the qpkg command. I had to emerge gentoolkit. Here's the output.
Code:

root # qpkg -I -v | grep xfree
x11-base/xfree-4.2.1-r2 *

How do I figure out what version I had previously?

OK, at first, go to home directory.
Usually, the file ".xinitrc" is in there. You can see it by "ls -a" command.
If there is not the file, it's not problem.
then, backup existent file (If it's there). And then, make temporary .xinitrc file.
Code:
cd                          ### go back to HOME directory.
ls -a                       ### check .xinitrc is existent or not.
mv .xinitrc .xinitrc.bak    ### backup the .xinitrc (If it's there)
echo "exec twm" > .xinitrc  ### make a temporary .xinitrc file.
startx                      ### At last, startx.

Try it.

If twm work well, so the problem may be in fluxbox...

Hmm.. I don't know too.
Do you remember rough version number of xfree package before?
for example, which xfree-3.* or xfree-4.* ?

# However you don't know it, It's not problem.

Ok...I did the .xinitrc thing and I'm still getting the same scrambled screen. Only this time it didn't go all the way into Fluxbox. What does the 'exec twm' suppose to do?

I can't remember at all what version I had. Boy, am I wishing I hadn't updated xfree now.

twm is a simple window manager, and it is default WM of Xfree86.
To describe "exec twm" in ~/.xinitrc and execute startx, it make X process to simple (to exclude fluxbox), so it make clearly to point of problem.
After all, we find that the cause of problem is not in window manager.

To fix the problem, we need more info.
At first, try this and write out result.
Code:
lspci

If "command not found", then
Code:
emerge sys-apps/pciutils


Secondly, try this config
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Diamond Stealth II"
    VendorName  "Diamond"
    BoardName   "Diamond Stealth II S220"
    Driver      "svga"    ### Generic VESA Driver

I didn't get any errors on this setting, but I still get the awful looking screen. I'm beginning to think it has nothing to do with my XF86Config-4 settings and more to do with my install of xfree. Some how when I was updating the files (etc-update) after the merge of xfree. Something was overwritten or updated that wasn't suppose to.

Here is what the XFree86.0.log file looks like now. These are the last few lines. Is there something wrong with fonts? Would that be causing my screen to look scrambled?
Code:

Maybe not.
But you should remove the error.
Only commentout the line in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, like this
Code:
#    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"

You may right.
But I cannot think any point about this problem...

At (really) last, write out all /var/log/XFree86.0.log, please.

Try this setting in /etc/X11/XF86Config.
The additional Modelines should not be active in same time.
At first, remove comment and active only "1024x768@85" line.
Second, only "1024x768@80" line ... like such.

(WW) System lacks support for changing MTRRs

It seems your kernel does not support MTRR option.
Had you updated kernel almost same time with xfree?
If so, try
Code:
cat /proc/mtrr
and write out the result.

I tried this suggestion, but still get the same bad screen.

I didn't mess with the kernel before I updated xfree. I've only recompiled on the box a few times. Here is the output from 'cat /proc/mtrr'. I still believe it has something to do with xfree. Everything was working great before the merging of xfree. But I have no clue what to look for.
Code:

root # cat /proc/mtrr
cat: /proc/mtrr: No such file or directory

I missed out to check basically step.
/var/log/XFree86.0.log is not include all of runtime errors.
To find the rest of runtime errors,
Code:
startx 2> Xerrorlog

Try this at console, and then, you can check the "Xerrorlog" after reboot.
Code:
cat Xerrorlog

Write out result of it.

mona-
I went ahead and unmerged xfree. And I'm in the process of merging xfree-4.3.0.ebuild. Thanks for your help. I thought this might be best instead of spending all our time on an older version. Plus, I thought this might just fix the problem. :? :?

I have exact the same problem. When doing a startx I only get a scrambled screen and my machine locks (even ctrl-alt-del doesn't work).

I have build my base system using the stable packages after the RC3 release (gcc, binutils, etc.). When I started the "desktop installation" I did an ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge kde to get xfree 4.3.0

I have a GeForce 4 Ti 4400 with an Athlon-XP and PDCraid. I'm building my machine with CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer". Started at stage one.

I have tried every combination with:
glibc-2.3.1-r2.ebuild
gcc-3.2.2.ebuild
gentoo-sources-2.4.19-r10.ebuild
gentoo-sources-2.4.20-r1.ebuild
xfree-4.3.0.ebuild
nvidia-glx-1.0.3123.ebuild + nvidia-kernel-1.0.4191-r1.ebuild
nvidia-glx-1.0.4191-r1.ebuild + nvidia-kernel-1.0.3123-r2.ebuild

I have tried virtually almost every possible combination in XF86Config.

If I don't use the nVidia-driver I can do startx, but with the nVidia-driver I get a scrambled screen.

I don't know if the problem is between:
gentoo-sources and nvidia-drivers
xfree 4.3.0 and nvidia-drivers
gcc / binutils / glibc and nvidia-drivers
Hence it can be something completely else.

This is driving me crazy. I won't give up but I need to be sure what combination you people have that works. I don't even dream of finding a solution soon, but you friendly people can help me if you can confirm / decline what combination you have working I would be very happy. Specially the people who installed their system after RC3 or are completely sure that their system is equally build (emerge sync && emerge world -up is not always the same because it's possible that not ALL packages are build with latest gcc, glibc, binutils; using the --emptytree is more like post RC3)
