Try changing to 8 bit. Karsten> xnest is your friend. Sadly, this is not the case. Xnest (at least in XF4) only gives you the visuals the underlying X server supplies. So, you can get Xnest to do 8bpp on a TrueColor X server only if the X server supplies *both* visuals (8bpp and 24/32bpp) at the same time. And there seems to be only one X server that does this: the one for Matrox cards (G400 only I think... pretty certainly no chips older than G200/400). Bye, J -- Jürgen A.
