I just installed a Sun v210 with Sol 9.  It has all latest patchs.  It came with out the video card (Sun XVR-100 Graphics Accelerator) installed.  I installed it and set the resolution as sugested etc.  All I get is a purple pattern of colors and no actual video display.  I have tried several different resolution settings using fbconfig.  Also checked res. capability using fbconfig.  When ever I change something I did:

touch /reconfigure

then did a :  sync

then a :  reboot -- -r

Have also tried using 24 and 8 bit depth mode:  fbconfig -dev pfb0 -depth 24  (or 8)
Also tried using a sun and different vendor monitors.  Nothingbut purple colors no matter what monitor I use!

Does anyone have a clue.  

There was a similiar post on this, but it didnt fix my problem.
