Re: X with 16 Bit ...
I want to configure my X with 16 Bit on my IBook2 with aty128 for
running opengl with 1024x786 pixels.
But after that, I saw, X felt back to 15 Bit and my screen was green.
How can I fix it?
I just went through this with a Powermac 8500 running 'Testing', and
here's how i solved the problem. It has the 'Control' display and
xserver-xfree 4.1.0-9, so if i set the depth to 16 bits, the color map
was a mess. The trick for me was to see the default depth to 15 bits,
and use overrides to get to 8 bits or 24 bits. That subrefuge was
necessary for me, as 'xdm' didn't believe in 15 bit color. So i didn't
tell 'xdm' anything and set 15 bits as the default in XF86Config-4. If
i want an override, i add '-bpp 8' or '-bpp 24' to the revelant line in
I have no idea whether that will help you, but it might be worth a try.
