Any idea? The system is an Ultra 30 with Elite3D and Creator framebuffers.

Thank you

This is most likely due to a conflict between the video cards. Please check out the section "Support for UPA graphics cards on ultrasparc machines with onboard graphics" on the wiki page


It contains a short description of the problem and a possible workaround (disabling one of the graphics cards in the prompt).
