Multiple Visuals under Solaris x86

I looked in the Solaris x86 FAQ but couldn't find
info on which video cards support multiple visuals
under X. Does the stock Solaris X server support
multiple visuals on some video cards? What about
3rd party and XFree86?


1. Multiple visuals with PGX24/PGX64 / was: Re: Visuals and Layers

This is not correct.
Setting the depth to 32 with m64config (% m64config -depth 32 #) will
give you both 24bit and 8bit visuals (Solaris 2.7/2.8 may require the
m64 driver patch, see or - this even
works on newer Ultra5 machines (older ones may not have enougth video
memory for 24bit).
