Description Gordon Messmer 2007-10-07 03:37:51 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a Radeon 9000 (RV250) card with multiple outputs.  I have two identical
LCD panels connected, one to the VGA port and the other to DVI (with an
adapter).  The screen looks proper on the LCD connected to the VGA output, but
the LCD connected to the DVI is too bright.  For instance, if I open a new
firefox window on the DVI conected screen, only the darkest parts of the
controls left of the URL box are visible.  Most of the icons are washed out.

I've swapped LCDs to make sure that the output was at fault; the screen
connected to the DVI output is always the bright one.

This was not a problem under F7.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional

For reference, the bug appears to be resolved in the current release of Fedora.

The power supply died in that PC, and I've been using a different one since. 
Sorry that it took me so long to check back in on this.
