Frame Buffer Depth

Creator 3D
When you change the display resolution, it sometimes sets itself up so that the 8-bit plane is the one that applications use by default. To fix it:

Solaris 8:

  • # ffbconfig -deflinear true -g 1.1
  • if you have an "older" Creator 3D, the -g 1.1 may not be necessary. To test if you have an old or new Creator 3D card:
    # /usr/sbin/ffbconfig -propt
    If the output of this command contains the phrase "gamma correction" then you have the new card.
Solaris 9:
  • copy /usr/dt/config/Xservers to /etc/dt/config/Xservers; make the control line like:
    :0 Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 -nobanner -defdepth 24

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
