1.1       wiki        1: ##Sun PGX32
                      2: This is a re-badged [Tech Source](http://www.techsource.com) Raptor GFX 8P, which in turn is a bog standard [3D Labs](http://www.3dlabs.com) Permedia 2 with Sun firmware in ROM.
                      3: The board has 8MB RAM and a 33MHz/32bit PCI interface.
                      4:

                      7:     0x00: 0x00093d3d 0x02900006 0x03800001 0x0000ff00
                      8:     Vendor Name: 3D Labs (0x3d3d)
                      9:     Device Name: GLINT Permedia 2V (0x0009)
                     10: 
                     11: There is nothing really remarkable about this card, Xorg's [[glint]] driver Just Works(tm). A kernel driver doesn't exist yet, for now we have to use the [[genfb]] driver.<br>
                     12: The firmware is rather buggy:
                     13: 
                     14: * the linebytes property is always the same as width, even with more than 8 bit colour depth
                     15: * some properties have trailing spaces
                     16: * the [[color!]] method does nothing so we can't change the palette in 8 bit
                     17: 
                     18: There are workarounds in [[genfb]] for the first two problems.
