Description Michael McConnell 2000-01-18 00:54:40 UTC
Installing Red Hat Linux 6.1 + updates on a system whose motherboard has
an on-board SiS 5597/5598 video controller, the fonts in X are solid blocks
of colour. After much tweaking a working fix was found to be to add to
the /etc/X11/XF86Config file in the video card section:

Options "xaa_no_color_exp"

Apparently this video hardware worked fine in XFree86- and got
broken since then...
