        Dear Sun-Managers,

        A couple of days ago I wrote about having problems configuring a
        SPARC 4 under Solaris 2.3; in particular, I was having problems
        with the SPARC 4 framebuffer.

        The reason I was having problems is simple: the on-board framebuffer
        on the SPARC 4 requires Solaris 2.4 to run OpenWindows. Solaris 2.3
        is NOT supported. I installed and configured Solaris 2.4 on the
        SPARC 4 and it works beautifully. Thanks to all who responded.

        and apologies to all those whos responses are yet to come through :)
