We run GRASS4.1 on SunOS4.1.3 on IPC's, IPX's Sparc 1+'s, Sun 690, etc.
The following settings on our Altek AC31 controller work fine with v.digit
(v.digit2 is the 4.0 version):
> S1 S2 S3 S4
> 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1
> 1 x x x x
> 2 x x x x
> 3 x x x x
> 4 x x x x
> 5 x x x x
> 6 x x x x
> 7 x x x x
> 8 x x x x
> We are using the al30f8_16 digitizer driver in our digcap file.
> This setup works for us on a Sun IPC and a Sun Sparc 1+. Good luck!
Why am I dreading the switch to Solaris 2.x ?!!
