Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11842
xbl doesn't work with XFree86 4.0 ATI server
Last modified: 2016-11-21 12:44:27 EST
When I run xbl I get:
Can't make single buffering because :
Your display hasn't 16 colors
OR Colors cannot be changed
I have XFree86-4.0-0.8 installed. I will attach my XF86Config file.
You need to tinker with your buffering options. xbl -buffer 0 should work for
you. Arghh...xbl is setgid root? Crap I should make a bug report...
xbl should figure out buffering and such automatically. I shouldn't have to
specify special command-line options to get it to work when it's capable of
working with my X server.
Furthermore, the error message is completely opaque and could use much
improvement. I don't even understand what it's complaining about. What does it
mean, "Your display hasn't 16 colors"? Of course it has 16 colors.
Created attachment 279 [details]
my XF86Config file
i have fixed this problem. set buffer 2. it
will work for all DISPLAY.
