Legacy SW Issues with Intel Driver (White displays as black on screen)
I've been trying to get a couple of x-terminals setup for a customer. The software they are running requires 8-bit color depth, however the drivers provided with Fedora Core 8 display anything that is supposed to be white as black. After applying all of the updates to bring FC8 up to date, the only changes to config files made are:
setting the 8-bit color depth as the default depth/depth
setting the dpms monitor option
turning the backingstore videocard option on
setting the fontpath to the remote server
0:Terminal -query <host>
Everything else is "as-is"
Another thing: switching to another VT and then back to X causes the areas which are supposed to be white to be white, with the exception of "stroke" around some text and the cursor.
The machines are all Dell Optiplex 360 PCs with Intel G33 integrated graphics.
Anyone have any ideas? I've tried disabling acceleration, turning on Dac6Bit, enabling legacy3d, and nothing has worked
when looking through the xorg.conf manpages, I came across the Visual entry. When I set it to TrueColor or StaticColor, the display "looks" right (Elements that should be white are white) but it is in grayscale mode. DirectColor makes the color all messed up, but in color at any rate.
I don't know if this will help or not, but I thought I would throw it out there.
