I tried creating a 8 bit TruelColor VNC session on a Fedora 9 machine
( cairo-1.6.4-1) and Ubuntu 8.04 machine ( libcairo2 -
1.6.0-0ubuntu2), however I couldn't create as even specifying class
TrueColor in command line ( vncserver -depth 8 -pixelformat BGR233 -cc
4) goes ahead and create 8 bit PseudoColor session. Removing vncserver
4.1.2 and installing tightvncserver enabled me to create a 8 bit
TrueColor session. However everything went pink as can be seen in
