Just thought you would like some feedback, Tom.  I installed the 3.3.5 RPMS on
my Lombard laptop today.

As you mentioned, I can use 15 bpp now.  However, the server will not start if
I use bpp 24; it will start if I use bpp 32, but this has the same problems I
had with that color mode before, i.e. apps like Lyx will not start.

I had been using the patched XF68_FBDev file from Kevin Hendrick's Java site
(I hope I got his name right), which allowed running using bpp 24 and was able

test the X server it errors out saying there is something wrong with the

Let me know if I can tell you anything else.
