I'm attempting to hookup 2 Sun monitors to my Ultra 10.  Thus far, I've installed an additional graphix card (same as the other).  I did a boot -r, now I think I've got to change the resolution to match the original (working) card by doing the m64config.  Is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks!

You need to edit /etc/dt/config/Xservers and add the new device in the line that looks like:

:0 Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 -dev /dev/fbs/ffb0

do i create the /etc/dt/config/Xservers file, because as root, or non-root, it doesn't exist.

thanks!
