This manual, SPARCstation 10SX and SPARCstation 20 System Configuration Guide, describes the machine-dependent functions of the Solaris(TM) graphics and window system APIs (Application Program Interfaces) such as XGL(TM) (2-D and 3-D Graphics Library) and Xlib, as related to the SX video subsystem. In addition, this document describes configuring and tuning the SX video subsystem to enhance the performance of the applications using the XGL API.
The XIL graphics software in this Solaris release does not provide performance enhancements specifically for the SPARCstation 10SX and SPARCstation 20. The last release to provide XIL acceleration specifically for these systems was the Solaris 2.5.1 release.
This document should be used as an addendum to the graphics developer documentation for your Solaris release and to the SPARCstation 10SX Hardware Owner's Guide or SPARCstation 20 Hardware Owner's Guide.
Chapter 1, Introduction to Graphics on the SPARCstation 10SX and SPARCstation 20 gives a brief description of the SPARCstation 10SX and 20SX.
Chapter 2, Reserving DRAM for SX Accelerated Applications discusses issues pertinent to configuring the SPARCstation 10SX and SPARCstation 20 to enhance Sun Pixel Arithmetic Memory processor (SX) accelerator performance.
Chapter 3, Running OpenWindows on the SPARCstation 10SX and SPARCstation 20 discusses the visuals that are present when running OpenWindows on the SPARCstation 10SX and SPARCstation 20.
Chapter 4, XGL Accelerator Guide for SX discusses the operation of XGL on the SX.
Appendix A, Boot Messages shows messages displayed on the SPARCstation 10SX or 20SX during the boot process following SXDRAM configuration.
This document may not contain information on basic UNIX\256 commands and procedures such as shutting down the system, booting the system, and configuring devices.
