Solaris 7 does not support the monochrome framebuffer bwtwo any more,
according to the Solaris on Hardware answerbook. This seems to contradict
the statement that, e.g., ELC machines are supported, which always come
with a bwtwo framebuffer only. If there is really no bwtwo, is there a
workaround? We still have a lot of older machines (sun4c) with this
framebuffer, most of them diskless clients.
Is it possible to integrate /platform/sun4c/kernel/drv/bwtwo and
/usr/openwin/server/modules/ddxSUNWbw2.so.1 from Solaris 2.6
into Solaris 7? Or will we need partitions containing Solaris 2.6 on the
OS server for the clients?
