Description of problem:
Xconfigurator --kickstart --monitor generic06
on computer with an S3 card (with 4MB). It would set up
1024x768@32bpp which does not work with this card. Only
16bpp turend out to work. Moreover it only would add entries for
24 and 32bpp.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Xconfigurator --kickstart --monitor generic06
This is not the only card where "--kickstart" sets up a mode which
does not work. It would be best to use a default color depth of "16" if
"--kickstart" is used since this usually works on all machines.
Morevoer, it would be extremely cool if one could specify the
default on the commandline like
--resolution xresXyres --depth 16
This would be an extremely cool feature!
Works in 7.2
