Issues with X color depth! Please Help!!
I am trying to do a DAMn SMall Linux hd install on an old Compaq Armada 1520 laptop. Everything is fine except I can't get the color depth right. AT 8 bit the colors are very bad, pics are very distorted making it useless. I know that it will do 800x600x8 bit . I have tried Xvesa, Xfbdev servers. I've also tried changing vga modes, I even downloaded and tried to get Xchips server to run, as someone n the DSL forum suggested. I have tried diff Xfree86.config files for my video card, nothing works.. I don't have much experience with linux so please be patient.
48 megs RAM
CIrrus Logic 7548 video card
ESS6878 sound card
PCMCIA - CNET
Help will be greatly appreciated!!!!!
