I have an Nvidia GF 9600GT video card, and am running the proprietary drivers.
The video card supports both 24-bit and 16-bit colour depth, and works with whichever I set up in xorg.conf as a DefaultDepth value.
However, I would like to switch the bit-depth "on the fly", i.e. without restarting X, just like I'm able to change the screen resolution (e.g. with xrandr).
Is this possible? If so, how, and if not, why?
Thanks in advance
