I'm doing an installation of X.3 on a graphite clamshell iBook SE/466. One thing that's bugging me is that the screen looks terrible, at least compared to when it was booting into OS 9. In the appearance control panel I set Font Smoothing Style to "Medium- best for flat panel LCD", but text is still blocky and uneven. Also, images don't look right either- hard to describe but sort of washed out and unclear (same at thousands or millions of colors). What gives? Any settings I need to change, or is this the best the aging hardware can manage?
Something else that I noticed in either OS was that the backlight is terribly uneven. Is that normal for this models?
