I was wondering if anyone out there has had problems with XV 3.00 under
Linux (or other u*ix). I contacted John (Bradley) about the problem
and he was unaware of it and sugested it was a problem with the port of
Xfree86. The problem manifests itself as an unstable color map, the
colors remain stable for a while (10 seconds or so) then start to change
causing 'patching' and color distortion. Refreshing does nothing, but
changing the color type (ie. normal to perfect) re-paints correctly, and
then after a few seconds start changing again. I can even go into
color edit and 'watch' the colors change while doing absolutely nothing!
System is 386/40, with a Trident 8900c (1Meg) card running 1024x768.
