I tried upgrading my XFree86 220.127.116.11 RH6 system (with the Nvidia
upgrades) to XFree86 3.3.5 and the results were ugly. I rpm'd the
upgrade and found that the colormap was pretty much screwed up at any
color depth aside from 8bpp. So I RPM'd my system back to 3.3.1 and
hopefully fixed the problem.
Not quite. For some reason my colormaps are screwed up when switching
between framebuffer consoles and X consoles. But not all the time. It's
randomly misbehaving now. In fact, sometimes switching virtual consoles
will fix the rainbow effect.
It never did this before.
I am thinking of wiping my X install and starting over from scratch. But
I'd rather just fix the problem. Anybody have any suggestions what to
