Description redhat-bugzilla 1999-10-06 15:37:22 UTC
xscreensaver tells me the following all the time:
imsmap: wanted 50 writable colors, got 0
imsmap: wanted 50 colors, got 26

this is even when i use 32bit depth on my screen and
obviously has enough colors for all my other program

xdpyinfo output:
screen #0:
depths (1):    24

i have a RivaTNT2 card
