I'm using an STP Trio32 card that is accelerated. My default bpp was
somehow set to 8, and I want to run 16 and/or 32.
The way I tried to accomplish this was to edit /usr/openwin/lib/Xinitrc
and add a '-depth' to the part that starts a window manager.
It looks like:
# Startup the OpenLook window manager
if [ ! -z "$WINDOWMANAGER" ]; then
exec $WINDOWMANAGER -depth 16 <--added this.
When I started 'openwin', I didn't get any errors, but I don't think
it used the 16bpp that I wanted. Is there a way to tell what is
Or perhaps someone knows of a better way to use these depths?
