Hello,
I am really new in this newsgroup, can be that my question
with already requested excuse me.

I have an SunBlade 100 with an Expert3D-Lite installed.
My system run Solaris 8 with CDE.

My problem is that when I run Mozilla (all the versions) and
that I takes the button in top on the right [.]
my icone has a bad representation, it is not color and one
does not distinguish the representation.

This problem is not seen on another system which does not

Try fbconfig -deflinear true -g1.1, that did it for me.

1. Sun Blade 100 and Expert3D-Lite Issues

Hi all,

I just cant seem to get my sun blade 100 to get my Expert3D-Lite card to
work properly.

Here is my set up:

        2 cards:  from prtdiag

     Bus   Freq
Brd  Type  MHz   Slot  Name                             Model
---  ----  ----  ----  -------------------------------- ----------------------
0    pci    33     0   SUNW,Expert3D-Lite (display)     SUNW,375-0116
0    pci    33    19   SUNW,m64B (display)              ATY,RageXL

My Xservers file:


/dev/fb0 -dev /dev/fbs/ifb0 left

I have 2 monitors:

        Sun GDM 5410
        Sun GDM 500PS (older)

I have the Expert3D-Lite card plugged into the GDM 5410 monitor on the
sun cable.  I followed the following instructions to install my card as
posted at:

http://sunsolve.sun.com/data/806/806-5932/pdf/806-5932-10.pdf

Everything loads up fine and I can log in.  I set my display for my
ex3Dlite card to be the login for dt, but the m64 card to be primary
dtlogin load page.

The login box pops up and looks ok nothing wrong with monitor or
picture on 3dlite, I log in, and the the m64 loads first and then ifb
loads as set in my Xservers.

The picture on my ifb i can see lines going up and down, clearly it
appears to be the frequency settings.  But the monitor is made for these
settings.  As well, I am using CDE for testing right now, if I click on
anything on that desktop, the monitor flickers and the screen reloads
(dont know if monitor, 3d card, or xserver).  so essentially I can not
use the 5410 monitor with 3dlite.

From my ifbconfig:

/usr/local/home#fbconfig -prconf

--- Hardware Configuration for /dev/fb ---
Type: Expert3D-Lite

EDID Data: Available - EDID version 1 revision 2
Monitor type: Sun P/N 365-1399 S/N 0046LB6080
Monitor possible resolutions: 1024x768x60, 1024x768x70, 1024x768x75,
1152x900x66, 1152x900x76, 1280x1024x67, 1280x1024x76, 640x480x60,
1600x1200x75
Current resolution setting: 1280x1024x76
Slave Mode: Enabled
Video Memory Total: 33554432
Video Memory Used: 31457280
Texture Memory Total: 16777216
Texture Memory Used: 0

How can I fix it, if I am missing anything, sorry, just post back or
email me and I can let you know.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
