Problem after installing root version 4.00/08 on Debian 3.0

after installing root version 4.00/08 from source
everything compiles with no problems, but I get t he following error each
time I run root :
"rootx xpm error: XpmColorFailed"
and I can’t display graphical objects on the screen

uname -a gives :
Linux xxxxx 2.4.18-k7 #1 Sun Apr 14 13:19:11 EST 2002 i686 unknown

I built the my root system with
./configure linuxdeb

gcc --version gives

What I am doing wrong ?

thanks for any help


gcc2.95 is buggy. Move to a more recent version of gcc such as gcc3.2 or 3.3


I have installed ROOT version 4.04/02g on Mac OS X, and I get the same error message:
"rootx xpm error: XpmColorFailed"
each time i start ROOT, and the star-up picture does not show.
I use gcc version 4.0 so that is not the problem.
