Default xfree compiled

Hello
It happened like this: I had my GeForce4 MX 420 working nicely in my Debian Unstable.

Since I like compiling things, I uninstalled the xfree package and compiled a new one. It is working now, but I cannot get more than 8bpp.

I just downloaded the new nvidia driver, but still the same.

By the way, it the nvidia splash screen doesn't appear anymore.

Any ideas??

Thx.

Are you requesting 24 bit color? Can you post an XF86Config file?

Add a line to the Screen section, right below Monitor "Monitor0", that reads:

DefaultDepth 24

And see if that helps.
