Installing and running OpenBSD on Sun Blade 1500 - Please help a newb!

ryv
Hi guys,

recently I've been given a Blade 1500 with a XVR-600. I've played with Linux
a lot over the years but OpenBSD confounds me! I have managed to install
OpenBSD on this device, but I'm at a bit of a loss of where to go from here.
I know that xenocera supports the XVR-600 using the wildcatfb and ifb
drivers but how to get them into a place where X can see them and implement
them is confusing me. Any help will be very greatly appreciated.

Angus

If your machine has just that XVR-600, it should just work.

Hi Mark,

it should but it doesn't seem to? Maybe I've stuffed up the install. I
followed the instructions on the OpenBSD site - do I then need to do
anything further? A follow up guide or something would be great.

Thanks for your reply.

Angus

it's pretty hard to screw up the install, however, your message lacks
detail...

What did you do?
What did you expect to happen?
What did you see actually happen?

Nick,

I followed (to the letter) the Sparc installation FAQ. After reboot, I ran X
at the # prompt and it immediately dropped me back to the # prompt. I have
run through the Sparc64 X notes and changed the aperture to 1.

The X log is as follows:

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional
information.


According to the installation notes I've read, it should automatically
detect and run the appropriate drivers (wildcat/ifb). Instead it seems to be
going wrong :-(

It should also be noted that startx fails as well. To be honest, I'm not
sure what to expect when I run X on OpenBSD - what should happen?

Thanks.

OK to follow up - I've done a quick and dirty install on an i386 box and I
can tell you that I do *not* get the normal grey coloured screen when I run
the X command, neither do I see fvwm when I run startx.

Hope that helps diagnose my problem....

Grr, things got broken in 4.7.  For now you'll need a minimal
xorg.conf with something like the following contents:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Device0"
        Driver      "wildcatfb"
EndSection

Hi Mark,

I'll give that a lash a bit later today and see if it works.

Thanks for the tip.

Hi everyone,

thanks to Mark I have a working desktop now! Oh the excitement! Now to
install up my Blade 150. It should make for a nice little proxy.

Thanks again,

Angus
