    unloaded:    fbdev,modesetting,vesa
    The ati DDX should "fail", as in not remain loaded, when the preferred amdgpu has succeeded. Output I would expect might be this:
    Code:
    Display:    x11

    The inxi devel version has had many revisions since the 3.0.2-1 version in TW, particularly since 3.0.5-0, and is now up to 3.0.5-11 as pinxi.

    "depths (7): 24, 1, 4, 8, 15, 16, 32" indeed means 24 bit is in current use.
    Hi
    Ahh the colon

    I don't even see that output here....

    I expected this, as after one of the last updates the colors in vlc are back to normal. So it is only in KDE Plasma, where
    some elements are nicely opaque, others are badly dithered more or less. I will look into KDE configuration.
