Hello all,

can anyone of you tell me, why Linux just can't accept SRM's graphics mode,
but always *must* initialize the TGA again? I'm trying to hook one of
DEC's fixed frequency monitors to an UDB, and it's especially annoying, that
it's on the one hand possible to configure SRM for sync-on-green, but that
on the other hand, everything is ignored by Milo / Linux.
Why is it that mandatory, that all computers have to boot in VGA mode :-( ???
Does Linux/Sparc also behave like this?

Anyway, if someone has an idea, how to get a fixed frequency sync-on-green
display hooeked to an UDB ( & working :-)), please tell me.
