System: linux 2.4.19, X 4.1.0, SDL 1.2.4, WM: AfterStep (no gnome/kde).
Hardware: Athlon 850, Riva TNT2 (nVidia drivers rev. 29.60)

Results: On windowed mode, all was fine.  No error messages, gamma actually
changed as expected (seen on desktop decorations).
On fullscreen mode, it _appears_ to go well, as no error messages appeared, but
it's a bit hardy to distinguish gamma changes on a black screen :-)
