My firefox icon is green! (DSL and my laptop)

Hi Everyone,

I use DamnSmallLinux on my super-old Dell CPi R-Series Pentium II laptop and I like it a lot..... except the part where all my colors are mismatched. Actually it's really not that big a deal but is kind of a little bit annoying.

My Firefox symbol is green and my other colors are all mismathed as well. And I actually don't even know what DSL's true background looks like!

Anybody been here before and could give me a quick tip or point in the right direction?


EDIT: Hmm... well I used the search function and found that my vid card might be 16-bit instead of 32. So I used fbdev at boot-up and all is well...color is good (this site has a blue theme, right?!?)

But I had to switch to 800x600 for my mouse to scroll even a little fast. Not too much trouble, except that now my screen is real small (desktop is in-laid about 1 inch from actual screen edge).

But this slow scrolling when I use the arrow key -- is this fixable by using a more optimal driver? I presume the slow scrolling occured because I switched to fbdev. The little tidbit of info from DSL said it was "framed" display, so the slowing makes sense in that it moves sort of frame-like if you know what I mean.

Anyway, wondering if I could use a 1020x740 <--- or whatever the actual size is --- and have the normal-pace scrolling?

FIXED! Switched back to Xvesa and just changed to 16-bit, got the color and speed now!
