I can only get Xwin to run in 8bpp. I am using the SVGA
server with a Matrox Mill-II card.

Also, is there a utility to easily view all the colors
in rgb.txt?

Thanks,
Chuck

Check the "Screen" section in  /etc/XF86Config, Is there a
  DefaultColorDepth 8
remove it. Also check if you have a "Display" Subsection with
  Depth 16
or
  Depth 24
defined.
