Solaris & XVR-100 Graphics Accelerator

Hi All,

We've got the XVR-100 graphics card in our V240 servers. We've attached a BENQ FP547 LCD screen to them. The screen give an error "Out of Range" I had this on my desktop PC and the solution was to drop the refresh rate to 60 Hz and the resolution to 1024x768.

I'm trying to do this on the sun boxes but I'm not sure how. In the manual for the XVR-100 is says to do the following:

# fbconfig -dev pfb0 -res 1024x768x60

Which I've done, but it's giving the error. Also when querying the monitor via it's own menu, the resolution is still too high and so is the refresh rate.

Any ideas?

Thanks

what error?

have you tried other resolutions?

by running:
fbconfig -dev pfb0 -prconf

you should get a list of possible resolutions that may work?

Yea, need to know the exact error.  Whats the output of "fbconfig -list"?

have you tried the full path to pfb0?:
fbconfig -dev /dev/fbs/pfb0 -res 1024x768x60

oh, and output of:
"fbconfig -propt"
might help us, too.

Hi All,

I eventually found a document on the web that resolved my problem.

at the OK prompt I did the following:

set out-put-device screen:r1024x768x60

Or while the Box is up do the following:

cd /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin

eeprom eeprom set output-device screen:r1024x768x60

Then reboot the box
