Weird color damage with 9631 after upgrade to 6.2-RELEASE
I've just upgraded to FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE, and now I'm experiencing some weird problems with nvidia driver (9631). I've used the same version on FreeBSD 6.1 without any problems, but now after updating (and recompiling driver as well) I experience following: though everything works (no crashes, no errors, opengl works etc.), all colors are strangely distorted. It feels like 24 bit color value for every pixel is written to 16-bit value somehow. Thus, value for pixel's blue channel is ignored completely (tested in GIMP's color picker), though there are blue colors on screen. black->red gradient looks like many repeated gradiends of red->green.
Older versions of the driver stopped working at all (agp_find_device failed: chipset unsupported on the console). I've tried both FreeBSD and NVIDIA AGP drivers, VM86 interface for video BIOS calls, recompiled Xorg, but nothing helped.

Here's some info. May also post Xorg logs if needed.

GPU is ABit Siluro Gf3 (GeForce3).

Re: Weird color damage with 9631 after upgrade to 6.2-RELEASE
Update: I did some more research on the nature of that color distortion. It seems like card interpretes each RGB8 value (24 bits, 8 for each color component) as RBG4 (12 bits, 4 bits for each component, red-blue-green order).
Thus, color which is 0xFF0000 (red) looks like magenta onscreen (red = 0xF, green = 0x0, blue = 0xF).

Nothing suspicious in the log though:

Also I've forgot to mention that nv driver works without any problems. But there's no OpenGL acceleration for nv :(

Re: Weird color damage with 9631 after upgrade to 6.2-RELEASE
Well, I've downgraded to 6.1, and discovered that 9631 driver still has those color artifacts. I've downgraded driver to 8776 and now everything works again at last.

But, the problems are still there:

nvidia-driver 9631 gives distorted colors on GeForce3 on both FreeBSD 6.1 and 6.2.
nvidia-driver 8776 does not work under FreeBSD 6.2 (NVRM: agp_find_device failed, chipset unsupported?) (but works under 6.1).

Re: Weird color damage with 9631 after upgrade to 6.2-RELEASE

I've got the same problem with Linux ( and 2.6.20) and the same driver (9631) with a GeForce 3 Ti 200. I don't know, how to solve the problem. Now, I use the opensource driver but without 3d-support.
