When I finally got the Onyx runing I found that the MCO had a setup up I haven't seen in the MCO manuals.
It was a 3@800x600 setup, which I think is optimal for three side-by-side screens. This format is not shown in the manual
http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... /ch02.html
but obviously it is possible if one just know how to program it.

If I turn it off using
Code:
setmon -x 3@800x600_60
/usr/gfx/stopgfx
/usr/gfx/startgfx
so I can use my ordinary single screen. Will it come back using
Code:
setmon -S 3@800x600_60
/usr/gfx/stopgfx
/usr/gfx/startgfx
or will I have to use some more advanced setup procedure?

Yes, it will come back, no problem.
I agree that 3 x 800x600 is the smartest res for the MCO as they fit side by side (try Quake for a cool 3 screen gaming, it will automatically widen the field of view)
Yeah it's strange that it isn't mentioned in the tech pubs.
I ended up trying all the res from the vof folder and I also ended up keeping the 3x800x600.
I'm seriously thinking of getting three flat screens and running it like that. But I need to get more table space first.
To make it easier to switch between the MCO and normal output while I am experimenting I created two small scripts one called startMCO and stopMCO that sits on my dekstop



Congrats to getting your Onyx running Björn!
//debug


startMCO
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/gfx
./setmon -S 3@800x600_60
./stopgfx
./startgfx


stopMCO
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/gfx
./stopgfx
./setmon -x 1280x1024_60
./startgfx


PS Damn cool that we probably got the two last running Onyxes in the country not 25km from each other !
