Hi. I was trying to install FreeBSD 7.0 on an old Sun Blade 100 computer (from 2002) which has an UltraSPARC IIe 500MHz RISC CPU in it. But I can't get the graphics to come up (I've only got text-console right now on the OS.). How can I fix this?
When I try to do a "startx", the screen just goes to black and the monitor light to yellow. Hooking to a TV shows that at this point there is "NO SIGNAL". I can "ctrl-alt-backspace" to shut down the X server and get a command prompt. The machine has an ATI chip of some sort inside, and I've tried configuring X to use several ATI drivers but all giving the same result. Xorg.0.log contained various warning (WW) messages, such as not being able to find "fonts.dir", the OS not having counted the PCI devices and so was guessing wildly, that an accelerated framebuffer could not be shadowed, and that there was not enough video RAM (required 12.8MB, card has only 8MB) to allocate a DRI static buffer. Disabling acceleration with 'Option "NoAccel" "true"' in the X config file under the "device" section did not help, although it got rid of the warning about not having enough video RAM. However I then got warnings "ATI(0): Acceleration disabled, not initializing the DRI" and "ATI(0): RENDER extension not supported with a shadowed framebuffer". What can I do to resolve this problem? ____________________________________________________________________________________ Looking for last minute shopping deals? Find them fast with Yahoo!
