SunBlade 2500 with XVR-1200 OpenBSD x windows issue
I have a SunBlade2500 with a XVR-1200 video card. It runs SunOS 10 well. I am trying to get it to run X-Windows from OpenBSD 5.2 which does not seem to start. At bootup the card and monitor are recognized. I have set the setenv input and output to keyboard and screen.
Is there a setup tutorial anywhere? I the README file does not seem to resolve the issue.
OpenBSD prides itself a secure system and one of its features appears to be not using X-windows. It is possible that the support of the video cards could be minimal according to its instruction of
There is a potential security advantage to leaving this aperture driver xf86(4) disabled, as the graphics engine on a modern video card could potentially be used to alter memory beyond the processor's control.
In searching the OpenBSD installation instruction I could only find the word "video" appearing once as above.
I am aware some BSD systems are more friendlier in supporting X-Windows than others so may be you could try other versions to get a better use of your video equipment.
