NAME
pcdisplay -- PC display adapter driver for wscons SYNOPSIS
options PCDISPLAY_SOFTCURSOR pcdisplay0 at isa? wsdisplay* at pcdisplay? console ? DESCRIPTION
This driver supports PC display adapter hardware within the wscons(4) console framework. It doesn't provide direct device driver entry points but makes its functions available via the internal wsdisplay(4) interface. The pcdisplay driver is intended as a minimal ``catch-all'' driver for the different kinds of MDA or CGA compatible adapters. It doesn't sup- port multiple screens, nor colors or font loading. Supported kernel option(s): options PCDISPLAY_SOFTCURSOR Use a large, non-blinking cursor generated by software. The default is to use the cursor provided by the underlying display hardware. SEE ALSO

NAME
cvc - virtual console driver DESCRIPTION
The cvc virtual console driver is a STREAMS-based pseudo driver that supports the network console. The cvc driver interfaces with con- sole(7D). Logically, the cvc driver sits below the console driver. It redirects console output to the cvcredir(7D) driver if a network console con- nection is active. If a network console connection is not active, it redirects console output to an internal hardware interface. The cvc driver receives console input from cvcredir and internal hardware and passes it to the process associated with /dev/console. NOTES
The cvc facility supersedes the SunOS wscons(7D) facility, which should not be used in conjunction with cvc. The wscons driver is use- ful for systems with directly attached consoles (frame buffers and keyboards), but is not useful with platforms using cvc, which have no local keyboard or frame buffer.
