Re: How to configure 256 colors...

Hi

I think you can see configuration on your
XF86Config file( or use xf86config command).
You can also start Xserver yourself and look
colors (number of bits)of your X config.

When you launch X server yourself (startx command)
you can choose your color configuration by :
startx -- -bpp Z
where Z is 8 (default : 256), 16 (64K colors),
24 or 32 bits.

Think the better way is to configure your server.
But I think that if your video card can use 8 bits ( at least SVGA mode) you may have your
256 colors by default.
