I just purchased a ultra sparc 5 for the first time today. I am a virgin in sparc territory and am completely at a loss. I administrate several debian servers but all of them are x86 based. Well it has a regular looking VGA port on the back but when I hook the monitor up I get no video. Once in a while there will be lines across the screen but that’s about it. It does beep so it sounds like it is posting and I can hear hard drive activity, but no video. I have tried changing the resolution using the following commands
Setenv output-device screen:r1024x768x60
But I still get nothingL The person I bought the machine from did include a 13w3 connecter but there is no place to plug the thing in. I know my monitor can easily support the 1024x768x60 resolution so I don’t think that is the issue. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
