colour setting in xwindow system

By dhruv_rai_puri ·
Whenever I open netscape in my x-window system, I get a warning that configuration is there for 4 colours only, and try some option with startx command. I have tried it
.But with no result.
Is there a way to configure it from within the x-window system.
I have a 14" colour monitor, which works perfectly well in windows.

What color depth did you configure X to use?

It sounds like you're using 4-bit pseudo color instead of 8, 16, or 32 bit color. This can happen with some video cards using the generic X-server.

use xconfigurator, XF86Setup or xvidtune and specify the proper refresh rate (h-v) for your monitor (or, if you see it in the list by name then choose your monitor there.) and the amount of video RAM your card has.

superprobe can help if you don't have the specifics for your video card chipset.
Also try starting X and specify a color depth such as: startx -- -bpp 8

You have to switch in a 32bit color mode.

On SuSE you ca use SAX (or call SAX from YaST), on other distribution XF86Setup can do the same work
