  1. Please help: Wrong colors after screen saver

    After screen blanking we see totally wrong colors. We have tried it with
    Xfree 4.3.0.1 (from SuSE 9.0) and V4.3.99.902 (from SuSE 9.1). It's only
    in 8 bit mode. We must use it because of an older software. We need a
    solution for the SuSE 9.0 environment. Option --render mono is used for
    the X server.

    What can we do?

    Regards,

    It seems to be a problem with the glx module. After disabling it in
    XF86Config I didn't see wrong colors again until now.

    File a bug at
    https://freedesktop.org/bugzilla/ent...i?product=xorg - there is
    some new code floating around which allows to emulate 8bit visuals on

    you are using and CC: me ...
