card. The framebuffer resolution is 1280x768, font size is 8x12 => the
screen makes 160x64 chars.

Could you try sparc daily image? it has 2.6.26-11 kernels and is
suppose to have this enabled.

Well, it doesn't seem so. According to Debian Official Kernel Configurations[1] the XVR drivers are not compiled in yet. Today I also tried the latest d-i snapshot[2] and it indeed came without the driver.
Are there any issues that prevent the drivers from being in kernel?
