Description Tim Connors 2006-09-25 06:26:25 UTC
There are still plenty of 8 bit x-terminals out there (I am tyoping on one now),
yet cairo doesn't support 8 bit colour:

Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:
        Depth: 8
        Alpha mask: 0x00000000
        Red   mask: 0x00000000
        Green mask: 0x00000000
        Blue  mask: 0x00000000
Please file an enhacement request (quoting the above) at:
logjam: /home/dajobe/dev/debian/cairo/cairo-1.2.4/src/cairo-image-surface.c:155:
_cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed.

I'm not running anything overly graphical -- logjam, so don't see why 8 bit
shouldn't be supported.
