Description Benjamin Jacobs 2008-04-01 23:01:55 EDT
Description of problem:
When viewing any (e)ps file with evince, the background color is always
displayed as yellow, instead of white. gv (ghostview) doesn't exhibit this
problem and shows the right white background. I believe that this mis-behaviour
is fairly recent (~ <3 weeks from now).

After a more bit more analysis, it appears that the blue component of the color
is ignored. I crafted a simple image with 3 simple colors:
 red shows as red (ff0000)
 green shows as green (00ff00)
 but blue shows as black (000000)
 and white as yellow (ffff00)

Looks like an endian issue to me since I'm on ppc. Thanks for looking into it :)

Workarround: Convert those files to pdf with ps2pdf (or epstopdf) and evince
will display the correct colors.

I can confirm that the current libspectre and evince in rawhide fix the issue.
