    I've just installed Fedora Core 2 Linux on my athlon computer with Riva TNT2
    AGP card, all goes well, no errors, no problem, except for one thing.

    I get the motion-trail-like lines that runs from all edges of objects
    (eg. right-click menu, window, texts, etc), for example, I opened the "Trash"
    window by double click on it, then centre it on the screen, to the sides
    of the window (both left / right, but NOT up / down) will project some kind
    faded trails, similar to those motion-trails you see when you take a photo
    of very fast moving object.

    These ray / trails follows objects (in this case, the Trash window for example)
    even when I click and hold the Trash window and move them around, the
    trail will always move with it.

    I was told by a friend that it could be graphic card, I switched over to another and my x server fails to start everytime. When I switch the card back its fine, but with the trail, plz note that this card is okay on Windows.

    Thanks for the help guys.
