First off, I thought I had my Xserver running with 24-bit color as the
default. When I run xdpyinfo, it tells me that the default visual is
0x20 (which in the list is an 8-bit visual). Does this in fact mean
that I'm running in 8-bit mode as default? I've tried starting my
Xsun with "defdepth 24" and "defclass TrueColor", both give the same
xdpyinfo as running Xsun plain. Am I reading it wrong?
This was brought on by me trying to get BlackBox Window Manager to run
on my machine. I can login to my machine from another box (16-bit
color is default as shown by xdpyinfo) and blackbox works fine. If I
login on the console, blackbox's colors are all funky and distorted
(can't read anything). Does anyone have a suggestion for me?
