Description of problem:
This bug came up when after running IDL (RSI) and trying to get a display were
greeted with:
"Unsupported X Windows visual (class: StaticGray, depth: 0)" and then the app
upon further investigation by running "xdpyinfo" the output mentions that we
have 2 visuals, both "TrueColor".  I contacted RSI and they mentioned
Xconfigurator which appears to be upgraded in Redhat 8 to the gui or
xf86config.  Upon running this we totally lost the XWindowing system until we
copied back the /etc/X11/XF86Config.backup to the original and startes X with
most Redhat machines we have tried have been okay with IDL, these were using
Redhat 7. and had many more "visuals mentioned when xdpyinfo was run.

What is the magic that I must do to get pseudocolor, grayscale and the other
types of visuals to be understood using Redhat 8? I have been told to go to
Redhat 7.3 and that seems like an ugly solution.
I must have this IDL software work.
The graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 4(generic) with 128MB
The monitor is a ViewSonic VG18lb 18.1" LCD 1280X1024 75 Hz.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run IDL and generate output in xwindow

Actual Results:  complains about visuals

Expected Results:  a window rendering some graphic output
