framebuffer console problems
I finally got a sun keyboard so I wouldn't have to use a serial console
anymore, and immediately ran into a problem with out of sync video:
root@sparcy:~# eeprom output-device
root@sparcy:~# fbset -i
mode "1024x768-127" <--- what?
# D: 100.000 MHz, H: 97.656 kHz, V: 127.157 Hz
geometry 1024 768 1024 768 8
timings 10000 0 0 0 0 0 0
Frame buffer device information:
Name : CGsix [TGX+]
Address : 0
Size : 3145728
Type : PACKED PIXELS
Visual : PSEUDOCOLOR
XPanStep : 0
YPanStep : 0
YWrapStep : 0
LineLength : 1024
Accelerator : Sun cg6
now this isn't with a sun monitor, but xrandr tells me:
SZ: Pixels Physical Refresh
*0 1024 x 768 ( 347mm x 260mm ) *84 75 70 60 87
and I can put it into 1024x768x60 just fine when it's not connected to the
so the question:
Is it supposed to say "1024x768-127" and not "1024x768-60" ?
I've been trying to figure out where the problem is:
A) the sun
B) the monitor
C) the 13w3 adapter
I don't think it is B because I know it can do 1024x768x60. I don't think it
is C because I have an indigo2 that boots up into 1280x1024 on B just fine.
So what could the problem be?
