I've tested with a normal PCI gfx without any luck. Looks like no
signal is sent to the "external" PCI graphics card.
And I don't know if there are any options that has to be changed to
activate a external graphics card on SGIs since I don't even get the
bootup screen when I power on the computer.
Anyone who have had a external _normal_ 32bit PCI card working on R12000?
pefo mentioned that he didn't know of support for any external pci
graphics on SGIs, (but..) there still might be a workaround.
