Client text backgroud-foreground colors in fog 1.2.0

  • Hi,
    it has been a change in the client text display when doing a task. Now text font is white and background red. Excuse me to say it’s not a comfortable view to some users eyes, so is there an easy way to change it to the previous colors?

    I understand why this is an issue but cannot explain why it’s happening. Especially as this seems to be a one off problem. While some systems seem to be more prone to this than others it’s still a very strange issue. Part of the strangeness of the issue is it doesn’t actually appear to affect the imaging process in any way. It ultimately is just colors. If I knew what’s causing it, and my suspicion is with the frame buffer console, I might be able to get a fix for this. Again, while I understand the issue it doesn’t appear to actually interfere with the imaging process.

  • It’s still happening to my in some clients occasionally. But in the next boot screen colors are right.
    So very difficult to find the cause.

  • Is that not the screen of PartImage, not PartClone ?

    And yah… as someone who has red/green colour perception deficiency, it’s hard on the eyes. o_O

  • I am seeing the exact same screen on every client I image. Is there a way to fix this? It is hard to read! So far, all of my clients have been Dell Optiplex machines. Most are the Optiplex 755.

  • Hi,
    not happened again. So sure it was related to something occasional.
    Thanks anyway.

    I don’t think so because guy who told me is serious, but it is also true that I was rebooting fog servers and perhaps the client get wrong parameters.
    Sorry, we are going to make more tests to discard it.

    That looks more like the monitor is showing in inverted colors rather than the normal colors. I did not make a change to how partclone gets displayed. Maybe somebody’s playing a joke with you?

  • Hi Tom,
    here is an image of what I mean.

    I don’t know that I fully understand what you mean. Did somebody change the color views on your setup? I ask this because I’m still seeing the background as the picture and the color of the text is green (if registered) and red if not registered.
