I have a SPARCstation 2 with a monochrome frame buffer.
I want to add a second, GX, frame buffer. I cannot find
any reference in the Sun docs on doing this. If you've done
it, please let me hear from you. I want to continue to use
the monochrome display as my primary display, but need the
ability to look at color images, also.
I received encouraging replies from a couple of people, so I
tried it. The frame buffer in the lower SBus slot is the console
at boot time. OpenWindows uses that device as its unix:0.0,
but X11 uses the other device (/dev/cgsix0) as its unix:0.0.
Other than that, everything works as it should.
BTW, in the course of playing around with this, I had a chance
to look at a grayscale monitor on a GX card. Looks real nice.
