Description Stephen So 2010-05-27 07:07:54 UTC
Description of problem:

It seems that some blue colors, such as that seen on the top bar of facebook or, aren't being reproduced accurately.  They seem to appear more violet/purple than blue.  This is noticeable when coming from using the Nvidia proprietary driver to nouveau.  I've noticed this in Fedora 11 and 12 as well for two different nvidia cards (Quadro FX1500M and Geforce 9400M)

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. When using nouveau, in a web browser, go to
2. Examine the blue logo and blue sections
3. Install the Nvidia proprietary driver
4. Repeat steps 1 and 2
Actual results:

The blue colors in nouveau appear to be more purple and violet than those in the Nvidia binary driver.

Expected results:

The blue colors should match.
