Annotation of wikisrc/users/macallan/pgx32.mdwn, revision 1.3

1.1       wiki        1: ##Sun PGX32
                      2: This is a re-badged [Tech Source]( Raptor GFX 8P, which in turn is a bog standard [3D Labs]( 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.
