Re: Xorg 7 on sparc64

In article <4495CE97.1000206@netunix.com> you write:

All are 24-bit capable, it's just 1 meg vs 4 megs video ram.  While
solaris dosn't support it, 16-bit works fine in linux.  I use 16-bit
on my ultra-5 (parts from two systems: older motherboard, 333mhz cpu)

Ultra-10 uses the same motherboard, therefore has the same onboard
video.  The UPA slot is blocked on the ultra-5, so only the ultra-10
can support the creator graphics.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
