Re: making 16bpp the default in X



Hi:

A note of appreciation to several,and a continued request for help. 

Luke Bussanmas, Rob Browining, Brian White, and Gary Dolan (others?  if
so accept my apology!)  have tried with varying degrees of success in
helping me get Netscape running on my 1MB TVGA 9400 CXi card and KFC 15"
monitor with X11R6, Debina 1.1 (with some upgrades). I am grateful to
all the folk who try to help those of us who are informationally
challenged.

So far, I do not seem to be able to change the SVGA server from 
a 4 layer root window (Is this 4 bit color?).  I have place the 
line DefaultColorDepth 16 in the XF86Config file, no difference.

I can get netscape running in a usable fashion using the command

	netscape -visual StaticGray

but this has limited resolution and limited colors.  

If anyone wants to see my XF86Config, I'll post or send it privately.

xdpyinfo (output below) says I have 16 colormap cells.

Help?
