Question Using 32-bit color (radeon 9500 pro - I already have drivers working)


I finally got the new ATI drivers working, and now I have direct rendering, 3D acceleration, etc. However, I can't use 32-bit color depth. Judging from the output of xdpyinfo, I think I should be able to use it:
Code:
screen #0:
  dimensions:    1280x1024 pixels (433x347 millimeters)
  resolution:    75x75 dots per inch
  depths (7):    24, 1, 4, 8, 15, 16, 32
But if I specify a depth of 32 in XF86Config-4, I get this error:
Code:
(EE) fglrx(0): Weight given (000) is inconsistent with the depth (32)
(EE) fglrx(0): PreInitWeight failed
(EE) fglrx(0): R200PreInit failed
(II) fglrx(0): === [R200PreInit] === end
(II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"
(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
I can't find what the driver means by "weight." What am I doing wrong?

I found this on google, but it suggests that there is no 32 bit depth. Hope that this helps.

Thanks. I'm not sure what to do about this, as it won't let me run at 16bpp, either, and some programs won't run correctly at 24bpp (ie zsnes)....
