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_3.3.3.1-0pre1v3 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_3.3.3.1-1 now, so I'll make proper diffs
against that package, and rebuild against glibc_2.0.105 sometime in
the next week or so.
