1680x1050 video resolution on XVR-100

I recently got a new Sun 22" Widescreen LCD monitor to use on my trusty desktop: a SunBlade 1500 with an XVR-100 graphics card runing Solaris 10u4.

Initially I could not get the system to run at the 1680x1050 native resolution of the monitor due to Solaris bug 6362624. Apparently this is fixed in patch 118717 although I ended up using the work-around from the bug report (add an entry to /etc/openwin/server/etc/OWconfig and run fbconfig). This worked great and I'm now running at 1680x1050.

Comments:

My poor office mate suffered with the 1680x1050 stretched circles problem for over 9 months and just lived with it.

Thanks to you I appended to the OWconfig and that works great!
These days you have to go to wesunsolve.com to get that workaround text.
