24 bit is not supported with the PowerBook 3400. THe max is 16-bit and it is
fixed to 800 x 600. I don't know how to set up the refresh rates on the
PowerBook, I don't even think powerbooks have refresh rates. I talked to the
technical support, they say there is a bug in the Xconfig, but not getting
far. Do u have any idea in which way I can run 16-bit mode in YDL, all
graphics look fuzzy in 8-bit.
