Sory for the reply to such an old message but I've recently hit this

Looking at the code for 9libs, I find a lot of places where the
number of colors is hard-coded at 256 (8-bit depth). I changed these
to 65536 for an experiment,as well as reducing my colordepth to
16-bit, but no joy. Things die where the color map is being read via
the X function. Not being an X programmer, I'm now stuck.

System is Mandrake 7.1 with XFree86 3.3.6

Suggestions or fixes?
