...or you can take the pains to set up xdm and run xconsole in the
Xsetup, or you can pray to the full moon with a mouth full of tequila,
squeezing a lime in when it's at its zenith and then lick some salt,
or...no, that's for getting the 24-bit support to work.
I believe that at the moment there is only 8-bit support in the kernel
for the tcx, but apparently you should be able to boldly hack where
few have hacked before and you can get full 24-bit going.
Then you'll be a hero.
I'd try it if I had a S24 card -- I'd KILL for 24-bit graphics on
Considering how many cards exist out there for the PC that can do
1152x864 (at least) at 24-bits deep, I consider it criminal that Sun
didn't make it more affordable for their platforms.
