Annotation of wikisrc/users/macallan/pgx32.mdwn, revision 1.3
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.
1.2 wiki 5: OpenFirmware name: TSI,GFXP
1.1 wiki 6: Common header:
7: 0x00: 0x00093d3d 0x02900006 0x03800001 0x0000ff00
8: Vendor Name: 3D Labs (0x3d3d)
9: Device Name: GLINT Permedia 2V (0x0009)
1.3 ! wiki 11: There is nothing really remarkable about this card, Xorg's [[glint]] driver Just Works(tm) and the [[pm2fb]] driver provides an accelerated console.<br>
1.1 wiki 12: The firmware is rather buggy:
14: * the linebytes property is always the same as width, even with more than 8 bit colour depth
1.3 ! wiki 15: * some property names have trailing spaces
1.1 wiki 16: * the [[color!]] method does nothing so we can't change the palette in 8 bit
1.3 ! wiki 18: There are workarounds in [[genfb]] and [[pm2fb]] for the first two problems, and [[pm2fb]] doesn't depend on firmware calls to access palette registers.
