Description Stefan Dirsch 2004-08-16 03:59:38 UTC
Looks like Xvfb is currently (CVS sources from 2004-08-15) completely broken. # Xvfb :99 Fatal server error: Couldn't add screen 0
Comment 1 Kevin E. Martin 2004-08-17 08:58:18 UTC
This is a problem with 8bpp. Xvfb works fine at depth 15, 16, 24. I am testing a fix for 8bpp and will check it in when it is ready.
Comment 2 Stefan Dirsch 2004-08-17 09:43:38 UTC
Thanks. Using e.g. Xvfb :99 -screen 0 1600x1200x15 Xvfb :99 -screen 0 1600x1200x16 Xvfb :99 -screen 0 1600x1200x24 works for me.

I'll try to do so. Surprisingly it works fine on AMD64, but not on IA32 ...

(In reply to comment #3) > I'll try to do so. Surprisingly it works fine on AMD64, but not on IA32 ... Did you mean to put this comment here or in bug 1092? I've got a patch just about ready for Xvfb to fix 8bpp mode, which I should be able to check in shortly.

(In reply to comment #5) > Yes, that was for 1092. I'm sorry. No problem, just wanted to make sure that there wasn't another problem. I just checked in the fix for 8bpp. It should work now with just "Xvfb :99". Closing.
Comment 7 Stefan Dirsch 2004-08-17 12:56:37 UTC
Just verified. The patch fixes the problem, which prevented Xvfb from starting in 8bpp. Thanks!
