Re: X color depth question
>From what I recall, in X3.3.6 TNT cards could not run above 16bpp
mode. Mine (TNT1) ran fine at 16bpp mode however, so that was good enough
Now with X4.0.1, i have running in 1200x960 in 24bpp (Xfree86 server) so
I can't complain at all. Oh, and I'm running the nVidia kernel and GLX
supplements too (avialable at www.nvidia.com) which are much better
supported for X4.0.1 than X3.3.6.

I have tried commenting out everything but the 24 bit lines but then I get errors. I think the problem is the x server. I am using the SVGA server with a Viper 770 (TNT2) is there a better server out there for it? Also has anyone had luck with the X 4.0.1 packages from Woody with a 2.2 system? Thanks for any feedback and help.
