Seems you don't use a flat-screen TFT as monitor. Your x11-routines don't get your resolution right.

For that cases a VGA-Mode would came handie, but we don't have it yet.

Press CRTL+ALT+F1 to switch to the terminal 1.
Login with root and pw paldo.

enter this cmd:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf


Press I-key.

add this to the file in the end:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
EndSection


You can replace 1280x1024 by any valid resolution of your screen.

Press ESC-key and write :wq to save the file.

Type
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
gdm stop
gdm start
to restart gdm.

Login as paldo with pw paldo.

This should work fine with radeon, assuming the EDID information the monitor provides is not buggy. You can try whether the "unstable" Live CD works as it includes a beta version of the upcoming radeon driver release.

You can also just try to use "vesa" instead of "radeon" (change xorg.conf), this usually works but you'll lose the acceleartion.
