Hi all --
Sent this query to the Rescue list last week, no bites. Any Sun
fanatics here have any ideas? (Linux/OpenBSD appear to support it, but
I'd rather keep the OS vintage-appropriate. For some reason...)
Got myself an RDI BriteLite IPX; a "laptop" (a generous description)
based around a stock SPARCStation IPX motherboard with a very large
laptop-style enclosure around it, a 640x480 active-matrix LCD (very
pretty) and a gigantic lead-acid battery. It has a handle, so it's portable!
Anyway -- I have it up and running and I have SunOS 4.1.4 installed on a
fresh hard disk (the original drive was long gone when I got it).
Unfortunately, the LCD framebuffer is unrecognized by SunOS; it
identifies itself as cgRDI and it's a custom SBUS board that drives the
From what I've been able to dig up this driver was packaged as "RDIlcd"
by RDI but I can't find it, of course. Anyone happen to have this
archived somewhere? Any other ideas?
