Hello, that was the first thing I tried however there is no VGA signal
on machfb. I managed to get IP address assigned to this machine from
DHCP server, logged in via ssh and looked at the logs. Looks like X
server has problems configuring framebuffer device.
So I generated xorg.conf manually with 'X -configure' and it thinks I
have 3 cards:
This looks wrong to me, one of them should be using sunffb driver. And
why all three drivers refer to the same BusID?
I tried copying this file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and leaving only
But still can't get X11 running
OK changed that to
and X11 works now.
