    XMMS: All weird looking

    I just installed XMMS on debian and it looks horrible! It's half colored and the other half looks like messed up white digital paint. Anyone know how to fix this?

    I also get this when I attempt to use gvim ....

    Code:
    ...
    E254: Cannot allocate color White
    E254: Cannot allocate color Blue
    E254: Cannot allocate color Blue
    E254: Cannot allocate color Blue
    E254: Cannot allocate color White
    E254: Cannot allocate color Red
    E254: Cannot allocate color Yellow
    E254: Cannot allocate color SeaGreen
    E254: Cannot allocate color Brown
    E254: Cannot allocate color SeaGreen
    E254: Cannot allocate color Magenta
    E254: Cannot allocate color Grey
    E254: Cannot allocate color Red
    E254: Cannot allocate color Black
    E254: Cannot allocate color Yellow
    E254: Cannot allocate color LightGrey
    E254: Cannot allocate color Grey

    E254: Cannot allocate color Blue
    E254: Cannot allocate color LightCyan
    E254: Cannot allocate color Red
    E254: Cannot allocate color Black
    ...
    I assume they are related problems ...

    how do other apps look? my 1st guess is taht you are using 8 bit color.

    It's possible that I am using 8bit but it sure doesn't look like it to me.
    All other apps look fine. Here is a screenshot ...

    hi ash,
    i gots to agree - it does look like at least 16 bit... but lets make sure, does your xfree86 config have a depth of 8 defined and is it the default - here is mine.
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier   "Screen0"
            Device       "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
            Monitor      "Monitor0"
            DefaultDepth    16
    
            Subsection "Display"
                    Depth       24
                    Modes       "1600x1200" "640x480" 
                    ViewPort    0 0
            EndSubsection
            Subsection "Display"
                    Depth       16
                    Modes       "1600x1200" "640x480" 
                    ViewPort    0 0
            EndSubsection

    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "Screen 1"
        Device      "ATI Rage 128"
        Monitor     "My Monitor"
        DefaultDepth 24   
    
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes       "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1280x1024"
            ViewPort    0 0
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       16
            Modes       "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1280x1024"
            ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes       "1600x1200"
            ViewPort    0 0

    Are they using a common library for grafix? That may be the problem - a corrupt graphics library...

    I'm not sure but it would seem that way. Same thing happens with TK applications (includding make xconfig for the kernel).

    Turns out it was a bad xlib (old version) that got written over via apt-get. XMMS looks fine now, now to see if Tk will work .....

    Yes!! It worked!
