Default Strange colors on RH9 with 1.0-4363

I'm using a Dell computer with Digital Flat Screen. The problem is that I get very strange colors on the X screen after I installed the 1.0-4363 driver. I didn't have this problem with RH8 and the driver version 1.0-3123.

My graphic card is Geforce Ti500.

I also attached the log files with the thread.

Thank you very much for you help in advance.

PS: I couldn't compile the old driver anymore on RH9.

I'm seeing the same problem with both RHL 9 and RHL 7.3 on my machine with a GeForce3 Ti 200 and a Dell 2000FP LCD panel, but only with the DVI connector -- colors are okay with the D-Sub (VGA) connector.

Although using the VGA connector could be a workaround, analog images never look as crisp as pure digital ones.

The 2960 driver works fine up to Red Hat's 2.4.18-27.7.x kernel (on RHL 7.3), but not for kernels after that. (Thus I'm using the older kernel on my 7.3 install.)

The color shift is as follows:

The blue channel is completely ignored. The red channel controls both red and/or blue values. Some red channel values result in pure blues, some reds, and some magentas.

Default Non-redhat

I am also having this problem (others here are seeing it as well). In all cases we have Dell 1702FPs and dell Dimension 4500s w/Nvidia graphics boards (OEM GF3ti200s from Dell, I believe). I am using a stock 2.4.20 kernel with
minimal options. The problem is also evident under the 2.6.0 kernel. Nvidia drivers are 4363 (although the last two versions have had the same problem). For reference the linux distro I'm using is Crux 1.1.

This only happens when using the DVI connector. VGA is fine. I will try using another DVI cable if I can find one although it seems improbable that the cable is the problem.

Thanks,
Loop

Thumbs up

Thank you very much. I moved to analog connector and the problem was solved.

Yes, VGA works, but it looks pretty awful compared to the DVI output. Not really a fix if you ask me....

Default 4496 did not fix it

So I have exactly the same problem with Ti 200 card. I hoped that 4496 would fix the problem but it did not. Now the screen looks differently but as bad as with 4363.
I am also using VGA analog connection for the moment as a fix but it is painful, very painful.

I did some experimentation with the 4496 driver.

I found that it worked fine with the DVI connector with the 2.4.18-27.7.x Red Hat kernel I've been using under 7.3. Unfortunately, it still doesn't work with the latest errata kernel, 2.4.20-19.7.

However, on a fresh RH 9 installed updated to the latest errata packages, 4496 seemed to work fine with the 2.4.20-19.9 kernel. So upgrading to RH 9 seems like a possible solution, if not an ideal one.
