Hi all,

I've acquired 3 new V210's and I have installed the XVR-100 video card
into the available PCI slot.  I've just completed the solaris 9
installation through the serial management port.  I installed the video
drivers and I am still getting no video.  Any thoughts?  I'm stuck and I
guess I'm not googling on the magic answer yet.

I guess I should have checked the obvious.  Thanks to all who replied.
The solution was checking the settings in the PROM, particularly the
input-device and the output-device.  The fix was:
from the OK prompt:
setenv output-device screen
setenv input-device keyboard

as root in Solaris:

eeprom output-device screen
eeprom input-device keyboard

I guess that's one to grow on.  Look for the obvious.  Thanks guys and
gals for a great list.
