Note - When running a Solaris 2.6 window system on most newer notebooks, the
resolution to use for the internal notebook display will be automatically determined.
However, you must still run kdmconfig to configure the notebook as well as the
characteristics of a possible external display. In kdmconfig, you should select the
Monitor Type, Screen Size, and Resolution/Colors entries that apply to your external
display. If you do not plan to use an external display, select one of the Notebook
entries as your Monitor. The window system software will automatically switch
between the available resolution for your internal notebook display and the
configured resolution for the external monitor.
If you have an older notebook for which the resolution of the display is not
automatically determined, the resolution selected by kdmconfig will be used on
both internal and external displays. On these notebooks, make sure you don’t select
a resolution that is higher than the internal display supports, because this may
damage the display.
Updated Video Support
4 Support for ATI 3D RAGE II+ chips has been updated. Support for ATI 3D Pro
Turbo cards with 8 Mbytes of video memory has been added.

Video Driver Update Release Notes
This section describes the diskette images in this Video Driver Update and known
problems in this release.
The Solaris 2.6 Intel Platform Edition Video Driver Update is distributed as DOS
diskette images. This allows the required diskettes to be created on non Solaris
systems as well as on Solaris systems. This release consists of five diskette images.
Each diskette image is for a specific set of video devices or notebooks. The images in
Video Driver Update 3 and their corresponding devices are:
du3vnbk
Updated video support for notebooks
du3vati
Updated video support for video cards and motherboards using video
chips from ATI Technologies
du3vmat
Updated video support for video cards and motherboards using video
chips from Matrox Graphics
Video Driver Update 3 for Solaris 2.6 (Intel Platform Edition)
7
du3vs3
Updated video support for video cards and motherboards using video
chips from S3
du3vcir
Updated video support for video cards and motherboards using video
chips from Cirrus Logic
You only need to install the images for the video devices you intend to use, although
you may install all the images if you want. They can be installed in any order.
Known Problems
4 (4076832) On boards using the Cirrus Logic GD5480 at 1280x1024 resolution with
24–bit color depth, moving windows aound may cause the X Server to crash.
Workaround: Select a different resolution..
4 (4033255) Boards using S3 ViRGE/VX (86C988) chips are not able to switch from
24–bit color depth resolutions to 8-bit color depth resolutions without rebooting.
4 (4023063) The display at resolution 800x600 on the Intel TMI/IPG system is not
correct. In a window system environment, the right edge of the screen appears to
have synchronization problems.
4 (4023057) XSun core dumps when attempting to display raster files. Using Image
Tool to display raster files on the Intel TMI/IPG system using the WD9031A-based
video adapter fails.
Workaround: Use the program xv.
4 (1250528) Onboard mouse configuration for the Dell Latitude XPi 75D notebook
computer will fail due to interrupt conflicts with the pcic driver.
Workaround: Edit /kernel/drv/pcic.conf and remove IRQ 12 from the
res-irq line as shown below. Change:
res-irq=3,5,9,11,12,15
to:
res-irq=3,5,9,11,15
Run kdmconfig to reconfigure the mouse.
4 (1192967) Due to hardware conflicts on some VESA local bus (VLB) systems, the
Diamond Viper Pro VLB card may not function when configured at the default
memory address (0xA0000000). If you see a blank screen and your system appears
hung after starting window system software, do the following:
1. Reboot your system.
8
Video Driver Update 3 Guide for Solaris 2.6 (Intel Platform Edition) ♦ April 1998
2. Run the kdmconfig program and choose a different memory address from the
Memory Address screen. The three possible choices are: 0x20000000,
0x80000000, or 0xA0000000.
3. Restart the window system software.
Follow these steps for each address until your system works correctly.
4 (1179340) Using the Intel Professional GX High Resolution system in 1280x1024
with 256 colors mode and an 80-kHz monitor causes problems when returning to
text mode after exiting the window system. The foreground color is set to purple;
the background color is set to blue.
Workaround: Select either a different resolution or a different monitor frequency
when configuring the window system.
4 (1179339) The ATI Graphics Ultra Pro VLB video card with a Mach32 graphics
chip, a TI68875 BFN RAMDAC, and 2 Mbytes of DRAM may not work properly if
the “ATI Graphic Ultra Pro (2MB)” entry is selected when configuring the window
system. Vertical bars get displayed on the screen.
Workaround: If you have this version of the card, choose the “ATI Graphic Ultra
Pro (1MB)” entry when configuring the window system, but note that you will not
be able to use a resolution of 1280x1024. Note also that the ATI Graphics Ultra Pro
VLB video card with VRAM does not have this problem.
4 (1173773) After running xlock, there may be a white border around the screen on
systems with video cards that use the Tseng Labs W32p chipset. This border
disappears after the screen is unlocked.
4 (1176285) Programs that use the SolarisTM PEXTM extension may fail if a user’s
XGLHOME variable is set incorrectly. If the XGLHOME shell environment variable
points to a nonexistent path (or one that doesn’t contain the XGLTM runtime
binaries), then any program that uses the Solaris PEX extension (including XGL
programs on most display adapters) will cause the server to abort.
Workaround: Before you start the window system, make sure your XGLHOME
environment variable is not set or that it points to a valid path for the system you
are using.
4 (1161494) Under the Solaris operating environment, the Diamond Viper video card
based on the P9000 chipset is not compatible with a motherboard that has a
Symphony chipset. This combination may cause the system to panic or reboot. If
the Symphony chipset is present on the motherboard, do not use the Diamond
Viper video card.
4 The VLB versions of the Diamond Viper and Diamond Viper Pro adapters do not
work on some systems that have both PCI and VESA local bus support on the
motherboard. The window system will fail with an error message when you
attempt to start it. The Solaris software expects a PCI version of the Diamond
Viper boards if the system supports PCI.
Video Driver Update 3 for Solaris 2.6 (Intel Platform Edition)
9
Workaround: Use a PCI version of the Diamond Viper adapters on those systems
that support both bus types.
4 The VLB version of the Diamond Viper SE adapter is not supported in this release.
4 Some versions of the Orchid Kelvin 64 VLB video card have memory addressing
limitations that may cause problems if your system contains 32 Mbytes or more of
RAM. A newer revision of this board addresses these problems. Unfortunately,
there is no distinction made between revisions of this card. If your system has 32
Mbytes or more of RAM and you observe symptoms such as a fuzzy display or
random vertical lines when using the window system, contact Orchid Technology
to request a newer version of this card.
4 The Number Nine Imagine 128, the #9GXE64, and #9GXE64 Pro video cards do not
support interlaced mode. Configuring the window system using a monitor type of
“MultiFrequency-38kHz (up to 1024x768 interlaced)” or “MultiFrequency-56kHz
(up to 1280x1024 interlaced)” will cause the window system to fail.
Workaround: Use a monitor that can support 1024x768 or 1280x1024 in
non-interlaced mode.
The following problems apply only to 24-bit depth color:
4 (1174561) The STB LIGHTSPEED VL video card used in 800x600 resolution, 24-bit
color mode, does not work properly with the Sony CPD 1604S monitor.
Workaround: Do not use this particular monitor type at that resolution and color
depth.
4 (1173985) Icon Editor dies when saving a 24-bit image to a file.
4 The IslandPaint application does not work properly under 24-bit mode. All of the
button icons on the left side of the window are either missing images or display
incorrect ones.
Creating Video Driver Update Diskette
Images
This Video Driver Update must be installed from diskettes. The diskette images are
available either in a compressed (.Z file) or zipped (.zip file) format. Since either
file produces the same diskette image, you only need to download the file in one of
the formats.
4 To uncompress a compressed (.Z) file, type:
# uncompress du3vxxx
10
Video Driver Update 3 Guide for Solaris 2.6 (Intel Platform Edition) ♦ April 1998
where du3vxxx is the name of the uncompressed diskette image.
Note - If you use Netscape to download a .Z file, it may remove the .Z suffix but
not uncompress it. If this happens, rename the file before you uncompress it.
# mv du3vxxx du3vxxx.Z
4 To unzip a zipped (.zip) file, follow the instructions that are appropriate for your
unzip program.
When you are done, you should have files of size 1474560 bytes.
Installing the Video Driver Update
The contents of the Video Driver Update diskette are installed as patches on your
Solaris 2.6 Intel Platform Edition system. To do this, you must already have the Solaris
2.6 Intel Platform Edition Driver Update installed and running on your system.
In Video Driver Update 3, there are six patches, each associated with a particular
driver:
105191-02 (v-ati)
105192-02 (v-cirrus)
105193-02 (v-ct55x)
105194-03 (v-s3)
105195-02 (v-matrox)
105200-03 (v-common)
Each diskette image consists of one of the first five patches and v-common.
After installing this Video Driver Update as described in this chapter, at the system
prompt, you may type:
% pkgparam SUNWxwpls TOPDRVLIST
to see a sorted list showing all video drivers installed on the system as well as the
current version number of each.
Video Driver Update 3 for Solaris 2.6 (Intel Platform Edition)
11
Note - If you are installing Solaris 2.6 Intel Platform Edition software on a system that
contains one of the video devices listed in Table 2-1, or on a notebook listed in Table
2-2, your video device or notebook will not be supported during the installation.
When you get to the point in the Solaris installation when the
kdmconfig - Introduction screen appears, press F4_Bypass to skip the window
system configuration at this time. Skipping the configuration allows you to install
with a non-window-system interface. Toward the end of the installation, you will be
given the opportunity to install the Video Driver Update. This is the correct time to
install this update. When you reboot the machine following the installation,
kdmconfig will be run again, and you can configure your video device or notebook
at this time.
1. Exit your window system to install the Video Driver Update.
If you are running the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), exit it and choose
Command Line Login from Options. If you are running the OpenWindows
environment, exit it.
2. Become root.
3. Type ps -ef | grep vold to see if the Volume Management software is
running on the machine you are updating.
For more information about managing diskettes and drives, see System
Administration Guide.
4. If Volume Management is running, temporarily stop it:
# /etc/init.d/volmgt stop
5. Transfer each diskette image to diskette by inserting a writable diskette into
your diskette drive and typing:
# dd if=du3vxxx of=/dev/rdiskette bs=10240
After the copy completes, you should see the messages:
144+0 records in
144+0 records out
#
12
Video Driver Update 3 Guide for Solaris 2.6 (Intel Platform Edition) ♦ April 1998
Note - You only need to install the images for the video devices you intend to use.
6. Label the Solaris 2.6 Video Diver Update 3 diskette and insert it into the
diskette drive.
7. Mount the diskette at the /mnt mount point:
# mount -F pcfs /dev/diskette /mnt
Note - You must mount the diskette at this point in the file structure to update
your system successfully.
8. Execute the install script on the diskette by typing:
# /mnt/DU/sol_26/i86pc/Tools/install.sh -i
The install.sh script searches for all new drivers on the diskette. When a new
driver is found, the following prompt is displayed:
Install patch driver-name? [y]
9. If the driver is the one you want to install, at the prompt, type y for yes or
press Enter. If the driver is not the one you want to install, type n for no.
If you specify yes, the install.sh script installs the driver you indicated.
Note - Whenever the driver v-common is available in a Video Driver Update,
you should always install it.
10. When you’re done and the install.sh script exits, unmount the diskette by
typing the following command at the system prompt:
# umount /mnt

11. Remove the diskette from the diskette drive.
Repeat Steps 5 through 11 for any additional Video Driver Update diskettes.
12. If Volume Management was turned off in Step 4 on page 12, you may turn it
on again:
# /etc/init.d/volmgt start
13. After the Video Driver Update software has been installed, reconfigure the
window system by typing:
# kdmconfig
kdmconfig attempts to identify your video device, monitor, keyboard, and
pointing device. The identification may be incorrect in some cases, so you should
verify each selection. kdmconfig will give you an opportunity to change each of
these selections, as well as the desired resolution and color depth. After the
selections are made, kdmconfig will allow you to test the selected configuration
by displaying a sample screen.
14. When you are satisfied with the configuration, click the Yes button on the
sample screen to save the configuration and exit kdmconfig.
15. End your root login session and restart the CDE or OpenWindows environment.
