AIX Version 4.3 System Management Guide: Operating System and Devices
Rebooting a System With Planar Graphics
If the machine has been installed with the planar graphics susbsystem only, and later an additional graphics adapter is added to the system, the following occurs:
- A new graphics adapter is added to the system, and its associated device driver software is installed.
- The system is rebooted, and one of the following occurs:
- If the system console is defined to be /dev/lft0
(lscons displays this information), the user will then be asked to select which display is the system console at reboot time. If the user selects a graphics adapter (non-TTY device), it will also become the new default display. If the user selects a TTY device instead of an LFT device, no system login will appear. The machine will need to be rebooted again at which time the TTY login screen will come up. It is assumed that if the user adds an additional graphics adapter into the system and the system console is an LFT device, the user will not select the TTY device as the system console.
- If the system console is defined to be a TTY, then at reboot time the newly added display adapter will become the default display.
Note: Since the TTY is the system console, it will remain the system console.
- If the system console is /def/lft0
, then after reboot, DPMS will come up disabled in order to show the system console selection text on the screen for an indefinite period of time. To re-enable DPMS, the system will need to be rebooted for the second time.
