Solaris Handbook for Sun Frame Buffers


  1. To configure the resolution on the PGX32 to 1152 x 900 at 66, type:

    # GFXconfig -res 1152x900x66

    To verify the resolution prior to setting it permanently, add the word "try" after the resolution name. This option displays a test pattern on the screen until you press the Return key. Then you can accept or reject the resolution. For example:

    # GFXconfig -res 1152x900x66 try -dev /dev/fbs/gfxp0

  1. To set the resolution to 1024 x 768 at 60 with a single TrueColor visual (no 8-bit PseudoColor visual), type:

    # GFXconfig -res 1024x768x60 -24only true

  1. To see the current settings for /dev/fbs/gfxp0, type:

    # GFXconfig -propt -dev /dev/gfx/gfxp0
