Description schicks roland 1999-11-29 02:37:31 EST
when i want to use some delivered X-programs (system tools) such as
interrupts to see which ones are already reserved, the answer window
indicating the result of my query seems like normal except the fields
containing the answers which are full black. I can'nt read it.
Some of other system tools have the same answer windows.
Could you help me on what to change or configure to be able to read the
Thanks and best regards

it seems to be near the same problem as BUG 6636

Doesn't happen here...
Might be a problem with your X server. What X server/graphics cards are you
using? Is the problem specific to printtool or does it happen for other
applications as well? If so, which other applications?
Comment 3 schicks roland 1999-12-02 07:20:59 EST
here are the answers:

X server is XF86_SVGA
Video card is SIS with chip 6326
The is problem doesn't only appear with Printtool but also with other system
I never had this kind of problem using older version of Redhat nor Suse nor
Slackware. My previous version of Redhat was 6.0
I hope this could be help you to find the solution.

Looks like either a problem with the X Server or a problem with X configuration.
Are you running in 16-color mode, by any chance?
