6.1i ISE - X Server error on Cygwin/XFree86: "Wind/U Warning (213): Palette mode is supported only in 8-bit pseudo-color"


Keywords: UNIX, FPGA Editor

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to run FPGA Editor (or other GUI-based implementation tools) using Cygwin/XFree86 on Windows 2000 as an X server, the following errors occur:

"Wind/U Warning (213): Palette mode is only supported in 8-bit pseudo-color."
"Wind/U Warning (216): Switched from palette mode to non-palette mode automatically."
"X Server Error, Message reported is: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)"

The program then returns to a prompt window.


You can solve this problem in the 6.1i version of the ISE GUI tools by reducing the color depth from 32 bits to 24 bits in the Control Panel -> Display -> Settings window.
