I guess this is something the developers list should take note off. If
somebody from the developers list should reply, please reply to the
users list and/or directly to me.

After I set the proprietary ATI driver without success, I tried
different xorg.conf settings for the VESA driver I used before and
couldn't get back a resolution of 1024x768. It's non-transparent were or
in which way the settings needs to be done. I tried different settings
for xorg.conf, all settings failed. I've got a backup of my 64 Studio,
but don't know which files I need to restore. Just restoring xorg.conf
fails. For me this is an attempt to make Linux become as non-transparent
as Windows, but Windows has got the advantage to work and not to fail
for issues like this, so transparency isn't needed from this point of
view. I don't know any other Linux distro that makes easy to do things
as complicated as Ubuntu does.
Do I need to restore the whole 64 Studio by my backup, just because the
proprietary ATI stuff failed? If this would happen for the Debian based
2.1, I only need to restore the xorg.conf and for doing this I even
don't need a backup of the xorg.conf.
