The colors are incorrect for the entire Haiku GUI. By "incorrect" I mean the wrong colors are used, and there is often a lot of pink and green. There are no graphical glitches; only the colors are incorrect. Please see the attached screenshot. I have a Radeon X850 XT PE video card. (Dec 2004, PCIe, codename "R480")
No bpp setting will fix the problem (8, 15, 16, 32 bpp). As a workaround, if I boot Linux, reboot, and then boot Haiku, then 32 bpp is almost correct and 16 bpp looks correct.
I assume the workaround works because Linux loads the Radeon "R420 microcode". Consider adding the microcode to Haiku. I will attach the microcode that is used in the Linux kernel for convenience.
