generally, you type:
startx -- -bpp 16
You need XF86Config set up correctly (is it possibly already
You can also edit the Xservers file (type "locate Xservers" it
should be in /etc/X11 somewhere) to use 16 bit. Mine has:
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -gamma 1.5 -bpp 16
as the active ingredient.

that lets him down. This is the fault of society. Society is
the fault of conditions. Conditions are the fault of society.
