Default listing the X bits

Under SGI systems, I used to be able to make some command line call, that would define how the bits were used.
IE 8 for Z buffer, 8 for color, 2 for stencil, etc.

Scratch that. That was a GL choose visual call or something.
There was a SGI call that listed all available GL visuals, that you could call form the command line, and it listed their attributes.

Is there something like that under redhat Linux?

Maybe you are refering to the command "glxinfo". Also, "glxinfo -v" will give you a more verbose listing.

Default found it

Under the SGI, it was findvis.

There seems to be no such linux equivalent, so what I do is
open a GL program, select a visual by hex ID, and
do glXGetConfig on all the parameters that I care about, then
prints them to the screen.

I found out I have 24 bits of Z in the default visual (0x24), so I am happy.

Thanks for the other thing though, that is also useful.

You could also try "xdpyinfo"

THe man page is here:

http://www.xfree86.org/4.2.1/xdpyinfo.1.html

It will also list useful information.
