DirectColor not working

I have been trying to get 16bit directcolor working. I have set up the xf86config with the appropriate values and when I restart X the video card logo is displayed (sort of) and then the screen begins to flash off and on. Eventually I have to reboot and take out the changes. By default it sets to 16 bit and truecolor.

I have redhat 8.0 and a nividia graphics car.

Any insight is appreciated.

Having something very similar myself, using nvidia on a desktop and a NeoMagic 2160 on a think pad (both using SuSE and X 4.2.0 ).

I end up on the laptop with the Login screen comin up briefly, with its Source X and Y apparently skewed, this occurs 3 times, then it seems to give up and Kde dies.

I have set Directcolor up etc, viewed the man pages, 16 Bit and Direct Color is supposedly supported.

So again, any suggestions : please :/.
