Sorry I should have been a lot clearer about my use of depth and bpp.
I have a couple of X-Servers (6.4) running on Embedded hardware that use
5-6-5 format packed for the Pixmap. I have about 15 different X-Servers
running on a number of different OS's and processors (SPARC, PA-RISC II,
XScale, AMD x64, Intel, MIPS).
I do admit that some of the systems I have are long in the tooth but we
have people using these systems...
I could probably try cario with some of these combinations and provide
some feedback. I am just not sure if I can commit any significant time.

I have had a look at patch for 1.2.4 and most of the patch is fine in
that what the patch does in isolation looks ok with the following
There is a thread issue at the top of _get_clut_r3g3b2 that needs to be
The patch should use XQueryColors rather then XQueryColor.
If the colourmap changes then there is no way of picking up the change.
Do we assume that the colourmap has been created specifically for cairo
and no-body else is using it? Possibly handle read only colour maps
differently from Read/Write colourmaps?
The colour matching may be an issue. What has been done looks reasonable
but I would like to see a reference to why this particular approach was
I don't know anything about Pixman and what formats it supports to say
if the checks made for the Visual class are sufficient. I suspect that
additional checks are required.
I doubt that 8-bit pseudocolor will be useable when anti-aliasing is
turned on. Dithering of colours will also introduce artefacts which may
not be acceptable.
I have found that when using 8-bit pseduocolour you want to be able to
specify the colour palette to ensure that you don't get any odd fills or
effects. In addition the colours used by the program need to contained
in the colourmap.
