The X server you are using does not support this database at all.
So don't waste your time in trying to provide a correct file - it 
won't work.

The next version of the server will be linked with the gdbm library,
but I'm not sure when ank (Andreas Kirschbaum) will release it.

On my Sun (MIT-X11R5) rgb.txt has the same format as under XFree 3.1 on
my PCs: Three, space seperated decimal (8 bit) values followed by
the color name.
