Fixed the cgsix colormap

Looks like the cgsix DAC is slightly different from the one used in cgthree. Fixed it and now the image doesn’t look so psychedelic anymore:

Now, that was the easy part. Making it work under OpenWindows is going to be trickier. There is virtually no documentation on the GPU. I guess this manual is really lost: as Sun tried to open the specs back in 2008, they failed with “Unable to locate (15-July-08)” message.

Does anyone by any chance have the book “TurboGX Reference Card” (p/n 800-5112) or any other document which describes how to program the TEC and FBC units of the TGX chip?
