I sent a message a few days ago titled: "Xorg/radeon update renders
console unreadable". Nothing from NetBSD list.

Only hints from searching the net.

For your case, I read that the problem is with the gamma incorrectly
set. Try (after installing xgamma(1)), something like:

xgamma -screen :0 -gamma 1.0

No guarantee (and this doesn't solve my problem).
