Done. The installation of the X packages for ATI is done. Now, I can start X, but :

- the display is very bad (lot of "garbage on it", like if another program write on
  the video memory). I think it's the same problem as for the text mode. (yes, I have
  disabled the option "accel".

- I don't known how to configure the mouse. It's a USB mouse. (I also have an USB
  mouse on a Dell Laptop, with kernel 2.4.4, and all is OK. For this, I have to load
  the mousedev module, but it is not present on the Ultra kernel (2.4.5-sun4u_9_sparc).
  Must I make my own kernel ?)

If you have a X86Config-4 sample file, I will be very happy.

I have updated, but no change.

Thanks for your help, and for your work on Debian GNU/Linux for SPARC.
