Description of problem:
Fresh install of Fedora 9 on a HP Pavilion tx1000z with Nvidia Geforce 6150. Gives wrong color depth. Even if I choose "millions of colors" on the System -> Administration -> Display... I still get bad color resolution.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start autoconfigured X with Geforce 6150
2. You get blurry desktop - thousands of colors, not millions
Blurry pictures and desktop.
Color depth should be maximum, probably 32 bbp, not 24 or 16.
Colors fine in Windows Vista
