32 bpp and startx
I'm having some trouble switching the display resolution under X-windows to 16 or 32bpp. I can only seem to get 8bpp. Slackware 8 came with XFree86 4.0, but this did not work, so I downloaded the XF86_S3 X server and set it up with xf86config. Now Xwindows works, but only in 8 bits per pixel. I tried adding "DefaultDepth 16" in various places in my XF86Config file, but then the X server just said it couldn't parse the line and crashed. This caused the X login manager to fail, which in turn meant I couldn't boot my computer without a boot disk. So what is the correct line?
As a side note, if I go to the command-line login, and then try to "startx" without logging in root, it says the X Server has to be run root. That's why I was using the graphical login.
So... if anyone can think of some solutions for either of these problems, I would much appreciate it!
