I need info on how Linux (maybe this is a generic X win question) allows
apps to run that use XAllocColors and color tables. The problem that I
have is this X app (motif really, hosted on another platform, using
Linux as the display) is requesting some colors, but refuses to run when
the display is my Linux box. The XAllocColors call fails to allocate
the needed number of colors. At first, I thought that maybe it has a
problem because my Display had a color depth of 32 bits, and was
confusing the app. Changing the color depth in XF86Config to 8 bits
didn't work either.
Anyone know of a good web resouce that discusses X color problems?
