XVR-500 in Ultras

    Hi all,
    I have a few XVR-500 removed from Blades and I am wondering if I can use
    them in the Ultras(5/10 and 80), anyone tried this before?

    Just checked on sunsolve which only have the Blades listed being
    supported, but in the description it says
    "6. The board is supported in either 33MHz or 66MHz PCI slots."

  2. Should work. It's not _supported_ by Sun but it shouldn't work fine

  3. Have had a pair of them in an Ultra 30 and an U60 before my current
    Blade 1000. The issue I had in the U30 was that the device driver would
    not load when the 66MHz slot was used. In the U60 all slots worked fine.

    U5/10 being quite recent should probably work ok aswell.

    End up putting them into the Ultra 80s, a shame I can't get it to work
    with the 20" Apple TFT at 1680x1050.

    Thanks for all the helps

    Boot with only that monitor connected.

    Then run (even if it didn't sync try this remote anyway) :

    prtconf -pv | grep edid

    You should get a bunch of hex numbers if it works.
    Post them back here, and I'll see what I can do ...
