XServer Features

Feature Description 

Release Date 

Using Xsun Server as a Display-Only Device

Two new options enable the Xsun server to run as a display-only device. With these options, users can run the Solaris window manager in display-only mode without the need for a keyboard or a mouse.  

You can now use the Xsun server in the following ways:

  • As a display-only device

  • As a display with alternative input devices other than a mouse or a keyboard

  • Without a display to drive a frame buffer for hardware-accelerated offscreen rendering

See the Xsun man page for further information.
