NAME

cgsixaccelerated 8-bit color frame buffer

SYNOPSIS

cgsix* at sbus? flags 0x0
wsdisplay* at cgsix?

DESCRIPTION

The cgsix is an SBus color frame buffer with graphics acceleration, commonly found in the non ‘creator’ SBus UltraSPARC workstations.
The cgsix driver interfaces the frame buffer with the wscons(4) console framework. It does not provide direct device driver entry points but makes its functions available via the internal wsdisplay(4) interface.
Different models exist, with various memory sizes and capabilities. The cgsix driver supports the four flavours:
By default hardware acceleration is used to erase the screen and scroll text. By setting flags to 1 (via config(8) or boot_config(8)) this acceleration can be disabled.

DISPLAY RESOLUTION

If the cgsix frame buffer is used as the console display, a different resolution than the default 1152x900 can be selected by changing the OpenPROM environment. To change the default resolution, type the following:
  ok setenv output-device screen:r1280x1024x76
to change to a 76Hz 1280x1024 resolution.
If the cgsix frame buffer is a secondary display, or a serial console is used, the display resolution cannot be changed without using an nvramrc OpenPROM script. Refer to the Sun Frame Buffer FAQ for details.
The cgsix frame buffer accepts the following resolutions:
screen:r1024x768x60
