Solaris 7 didn't include the drivers for the Raptor PGX32 card until the May '99 release.
Our version is Oct '98 (the system's been sitting a while).
I had to track down and hunt for the Raptor CD and install the drivers.

I'm doing a brand new installation of Solaris 7 on an E450.
During installation (off the CDROM) it gives the error
"Can't find driver for console frame buffer"

After installation is complete, all I have is a terminal interface.
Packages SUNWsx,sxow, sxxgl are loaded

Any ideas why the GUI display won't come up?
