--- Comment #69 from Frédéric Boiteux <fboiteux at calistel.com>  2008-01-18 04:18:20 PST ---

  I can't use libcairo and all GTK applications of a Debian Etch (cairo 1.2.4)
on my X11 NCD terminal (8bit colors) since a long time. I've tried to use patch
#6762, and with it, applications launch but giving a lot of messages like :

No workaround for this pixel format: Visual: class=TrueColor, bpRGB=8, CM=8,
r=7, g=38, b=c0
And no text appear !

  I've also tried patch #6819, but applications fail :
_cairo_format_from_pixman_format:  l'assertion « NOT_REACHED » a échoué.
Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:
        Depth: 8
        Alpha mask: 0x00000000
        Red   mask: 0x00000007
        Green mask: 0x00000038
        Blue  mask: 0x000000c0
Please file an enhacement request (quoting the above) at:

I'm not as lucky as Marek, and always stuck on old Debian Sarge from 2005 :-(
