Description Thomas Sailer 2003-05-20 10:50:34 UTC
Description of problem:
FlightGear 0.9.1 displays gray boxes on a Matrox G550 instead of menu text.
Display is correct using either software rendering on a G550 or hardware
rendering on Radeon cards. FlightGear even renders correctly on a G550 with
hardware rendering in XFree 4.2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.3.0-2, 4.3.0-10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
run FlightGear (fgfs)
Actual results:
FlightGear runs normally, except that menu text is displayed in gray boxes on
Matrox G550 cards with hardware rendering. See attached screenshot

Expected results:
FlightGear menu text should be rendered even on matrox cards with hardware
