DECwindows X Bad Match errors? (GCU)

» close window

The Question is:

How can I test GALAXY on a DS10 (eg. XP900) with 2 Elsa Gloria cards, if i
can't see a thing?
Screen 0 is 24 bit deep and the GCU screen is completly unreadable (X Error
Bad Match 62 X_Copy Area) and screen 1 is 8 bit deep and does partially show
things, so I'm not sure, if I do miss anything. Same kind of error messages.
I'm not sure, if there is anybody in Germany, who I can ask for help on

The Answer is :

  Please acquire the available GRAPHICS and SYS ECO kits, and any available
  ECO kit for the particular DECwindows version in use.  (The OpenVMS Wizard
  would also recommend using the same attributes on all graphics controllers.)
  If the problem should persist, please contact the Compaq Customer Support
  Center directly.
