A 'Savage' is probably not very well supported in Linux.

Try with a Matrox G400 or similar and report back the results...

[Automatic answer: RTFM (read DOCS, FAQ), also read DOCS/bugreports.html]
i searched the archive and found that some had this problem while
enocding. I do have it when i'm watching a film.
When fog/explosions etc. occur or when it gets dark, the quality of the
film gets *very* ugly. It doesn't matter wether i use x11, xv or DGA as
Video Ouput.
I have a 1800Athlon with a Savage (which has as i think 32mb), so it
should not be a hardware problem. The thing is, when i boot with Win and
watch it there, the quality is perfect. This is something i encoutered
even on other PCs. I never get the same quality under Linux.

Thanks for any advices
