During installation the setup program correctly recognize my permedia2V graphic card and sets up an XF86Config wich lacks an 8 bpp monitor section while the glint server has an 8 bpp default. This ends up with a non working XF86Config until you correct it by adding a DefaultColorDepth 32 in driver section or add (worse) an 8 bpp section. BTW. Where is the X configuration program used by installation, I could not find it among the programs in gnome menus. BTW (again) not all application installed are marked among the various menus : is this a choice or simply a lack of time ??

The Xconfigurator program will automatically set up the best choice for resolution and color depth. The user is allowed to customize this selection if he/she choses, so that is where you would add the 8bpp declaration. As for the program which is run during the installer, it is called "Xconfigurator" and can be run from the command line as root just by typing "Xconfigurator" As for applications not showing up in the menus, that is really by choice. If we entered every application which gets installed into the menu, they would get quite large. There are a lot of administration applications which we do not put into the menu, as they are rarely run, and generally are run by hand. Users are allowed to customize their own menus, so you can choose to add any applications that you would like.
