Modifying the Xservers File

To configure the Sun XVR-200 graphics accelerator, you must modify your Xservers file. This chapter describes how to make that modification.

Configuring the Graphics Device Through the Xservers File

The Sun XVR-200 graphics accelerator device name is mko0. To configure the Xservers file, do the following:

1. Become superuser and open the /etc/dt/config/Xservers file.

# cd /etc/dt/config
# vi + Xservers

If the /etc/dt/config/Xservers file does not exist, create the /etc/dt/config directory and copy the Xservers file from /usr/dt/config/Xservers to /etc/dt/config.

# mkdir -p /etc/dt/config
# cp /usr/dt/config/Xservers /etc/dt/config
# cd /etc/dt/config
# vi + Xservers

2. Modify the file by adding the device location for the Sun XVR-200 graphics accelerator device.

Enter the Xservers file content in one long line.

This example shows the Xservers configuration file modified for one Sun XVR-200 graphics accelerator (mko0) to start the desktop:

:0 Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xserver :0 -dev /dev/fbs/mko0 -nobanner

3. Log out, then log back in.

4. If you are editing the Xservers file after completing installation, reboot your system.
