Subject: [gentoo-user] Colors corrupted in X after returning from text console
Date: Wed, 21 Oct 2009 01:02:43
1 Some people like the nice crisp text of true console mode. Many can't
2 stand surfing with a textmode browser. Count me in both groups. So I
3 switch back and forth a lot. This email is being composed in a true
4 text console (80 columns x 48 rows; but that's another story). I flip
5 to X for surfing/spreadsheets/etc. When I do, I find that the colours
6 on my current machine's display are corrupted. Clicking on a window
7 will reset most of the colours, but the window title-bar still looks
8 like colour confetti.
10 Background info... I'm running 32-bit X86 Gentoo on an Intel Core2
11 Duo cpu. "lspci -v" shows the integrated video controller twice, as
12 both 00:00.0 and as 00:02.0, like so...
