Check /etc/dt/config/Xservers.
If last line is commented out as follows:

# * Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X :0

remove '# ' and restart dtlogin:

# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop
# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc start

Hope this helps,

Hi,

The line you referenced in Xservers is already uncommented but thanks for your suggestion.

Something to try, but I haven't except on an Itanium workstation, where it worked, would be to pause the boot process at the EFI menu and selecting the EFI shell.

Type 'fs0:'
Type in 'hpux [return]'
press '[return]' again to stop the auto boot
type boot vmunix -vga

There seems to be some confusion here. I can definitively state that the Management Processor Card VGA port supports CDE on HP-UX 11.23. I have just (last two weeks) installed three RX2600 boxes with HP-UX and all of them are running CDE via MP VGA output.
I had changed IP addresses and was getting an error message on start up and CDE would not come up because I hadn't made the host file nor DNS changes. But I was still able to get the VGA output as a console prompt.
The question is are you getting output to your VGA and CDE isn't coming up or are you getting no output via the VGA?

Hi Glenn,

As I stated in my original post - VGA settings are correct in EFI and output does go to VGA monitor - it still acts like a console and CDE will not start.

It appears that from all of the responses received from this post - you are the only person running CDE from the VGA MP on an RX2600.

Maybe the screen resolution is at the default of 1280x1024, and the vga can't go that high? Go into sam and try changing the display resolution.

Hi Bob,

I could run CDE on VGA monitor too although
it's rx4640. Do you have USB mouse connected
to rx2600? If not, X server won't run.
Also, you need to enable USB kbd/mouse
at EFI Console Input devides.

Do you see CDE start message on your VGA monitor?

I follow Ken's help and CDE starts ok on the VGA monitor,So I copy the Ken's help below.a

Check /etc/dt/config/Xservers.
If last line is commented out as follows:

# * Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X :0

remove '# ' and restart dtlogin:

# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop
# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc start

Thanks to Ken.
