Or if your using xdm change the line
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
in /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers to
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -bpp 16
Adding a line
in the /etc/X11/XF86Config file, section Screen, subsection Display
is how I do it right now - with xdm that is.
Is that the generic solution, ie independent of starting mechanism
being xdm or startx?
