XTerm Colors
It's not exactly a Linux question but I thought somebody here might have some insight.

I am running NetBSD 4.0, hpcmips port on a MobilePro 780 and am having trouble
getting colors working in XTerms; they are all black text on a white
background by default, but my configuration changes seem to have no effect.

Here is my setup:


xrdb merge ~/.Xresources
xterm &
exec ratpoison


#include ~/.xrdb/01-look-zenburn.xrdb
#include ~/.xrdb/02-xterm.xrdb

~/.xrdb/01-look-zenburn.xrdb is
~/.xrdb/02-xterm.xrdb is

Does anyone notice something missing?

Local I am assuming? Try making the change globally...(who are you logged in as?, what dir, etc?)
