Snow iBook, running OS 10.1 with 10.1 dev tools. I
have the latest (4/30/02) dev source of XFree86
4.2. 192mb RAM, 10gb hard drive....

Running in regular quartz mode, the display works
great.

However, running in rootless mode, gives no
errors on startup, but any X app that is run (from
xterms to freeciv to gimp to abiword) has lines
running down the application displays. I can't find
anything wrong with the software setup and have
tried binary and source distributions with the same
results.

    The current top of the tree from XFree86 CVS only works in 24-bit color ("millions of colors") in rootless mode. You need to set your display to this mode before you start XDarwin. In "thousands of colors" all the X11 windows will have the stripes in rootless mode as you described.
