How do I fix the error "Cannot allocate colormap entry "?
Posted on 1997-10-07
I am running Linux 2.0.30 (Redhat 4.2) with the Diamond Stealth Video 3D 2200 (2MB RAM) video card. When I have a few applications running, including netscape, and 7 tkgoodstuff icons, I often get the error "Cannot allocate colormap entry <colorname>" if I try to start a new application. For example, if I try to start emacs with a green background, it gives me a couple of colormap error messages, and then fires up with a gray background.
Is there any software fix to this?
