ol*wm for XFree86 3.1.1 (15-bit HiColor) under Linux?

Post by Donald Bu » Sun, 26 Mar 1995 13:25:58

I just installed XFree86 3.1.1 on my Linux machine.  I've configured the
server for 15-bit (HiColor) mode.  I know my mode is configured
correctly, because when I use XV to display 24-bit JPEG's, they come out
looking like they should.

All of my window managers (twm, fvwm, etc.) seem to be able to cope with
15-bpp properly.  Except for the OpenWindows ports (olwm, olvwm, et al).

Is there a version of ol*wm, etc. that can deal with 15/16/24 bit color?  
(basically, anything greater than 8-bit color)  If so, where may I ftp it

Please reply by e-mail.  Thanks!

1. does XFree86-1.3 work with 15 bit color (hicolor) cards?

Does anyone know if XFree86-1.3 can take advantage of
hicolor (5,5,5) cards? I have one that is based on
ET4000 and is known as diamond speedstar plus hicolor card.
(I can't find the xfree newsgroup where I
should I ask this.)

I use this right now via dos where I have a stand alone
pgm that shows 15 bit color.

Thanks for any hints, I am rather new to XFree stuff.
