Re: gnome silliness
thats kind of the wierd thing
gdm is happy with less colors more pixels. then gnome fires up and ruins
kill gdm and use startx
get nice little X cursor, gnome starts and the res goes all stupid
im willing to admit metacity could be at fault here.
does anyone know why gnome would be demanding 24 bit color.
i would rather 16bt 800x600 over 24bit 640x480!!
i cant find anytihng in ~/.gnome* /usr/share/gnome/* etc
This shouldn't have anything to do with GNOME, but with your xfree
settings. Take a look at the file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. Once
your video card and monitor can handle it, there should be no issue
with switching down in colour and up in resolution.
