Note, that not all VGA cables have pin 9 connected, which is required for
powering the monitor EEPROM. Without this, the FFB driver might not be able

don't connect this pin either, but the 130-3034 adapters that I have do.
Are yours "genuine" Sun 130-3034? E.g., a quick search turns
up lots of things that *claim* to be 130-3034 but, I suspect,
