Nvidia and Color Help
Ok I been going at this for day's now and just can't figure it out. I just upgraded to redhat 8.0 from 7.3 and installed the new Nvidia drivers ver 4191 for i686 processor ( i used the src.rpm ) and Installed for ut2003 for some good fagging and guess what?? The color is messed up! well not messed up bad but it is like.... I can't explaine but I remember the same problem being on rh 7.3. I had to delete some files ( and this is why i'm posting ). I know the files are lib... something .so but what are the full names of the files i have to delete to correct my color problem??

thank you in advance

here is the problem.

If you look at the selection bar the color is all wrong and so is the smoke coming from the rocket launcher

My first impression is that the problem is banding caused by insuficient color precision ie you are using a 16bpp mode.
To check run
xdpyinfo your should be bombarded with information most of which you can ignore. You should see a bunch of lines that say:
depth: 24 planes
depth: 16 planes
or if you are unlecky enough
depth: 15 planes

The number of planes is the number of bits used for actual color infomation per pixel (even when running at "32bits per pixel" you only get 24bpp of actual color information ... the other 8 are used for things like alpha or stencil). If the number you see is less than 24 then do the following:

Edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. There probably is a line that says something like:
DefaultDepth 16
and another close by that says
Depth 16
Change both of the 16 to 24 and then restart your X server.
