I don't have the 2.2.5cvs source anymore (toasted the partition so I
could build X on it). However, I do have:
cvs 2.2.7 kernel (for sparc32, the sparc64 one is building now) at:
deb http://www.cse.msu.edu/debian slink kernel
XFree86_126.96.36.199-0pre1v3 with accelerated LEO support and accelerated
FFB (Creator) support added. It needs a kernel with LEO support compiled
in, and it was compiled against your libc-2.1.1, so sparc32 users will
have to use the 2.2.7 kernel or build their own.
The Creator support is said to require "recent" kernels. I don't know
if 2.2.1 is recent enough, the 2.2.7 kernel should work fine when I
get done compiling it.
Preliminary packages at:
deb http://www.cse.msu.edu/debian slink x3331
(You will also have to "ln -s /dev/fb0 /dev/fb".)
Branden has released XFree86_188.8.131.52-1 now, so I'll make proper diffs
against that package, and rebuild against glibc_2.0.105 sometime in
the next week or so.
