Re: Trying to boot a C360 with graphic console


My c360 works fine, but has the following graphics card:

01:04.0 Display controller: Hewlett-Packard Company A4977A Visualize EG (rev 03)

note that i don't know if that card actually works as i use the pc over serial cable and ethernet only...

There is no improvement. The machine do boot and display the following
message last lines:

Console colour dummy device 160x64 console handover: boot [ttyB0] -> real [tty0]

Next, no Tux, nothing else than a black display and a beating first LED on
the front panel.

Has someone fisrt-hand experience with running debian-hppa on a C200, C240
or C360 workstations with a HP A4071B graphic adapter ?

Thanks in advance for all hints.
