Re: Installing debian on a SunBlade 100

It's OK. I have now the Ben's XFree86 4.0.3 packages, and it works. I will
update and try the 4.1 as soon as he has release it.

I don't know if it can help, but all users interested by this port can send an
email to them, so they can see there is an interest. (BTW, is the vendor Sun,
or is it a sub-contractor ?)

You will got it in a separate email.

Please note the garbage is also present on X.

It's strange, because I have had one time a correct display, without garbage.
I have try many times to reproduce this, without success for now.

My current configuration is a SunBlade 100 and a Ultra 10, both connected to
the same screen, a Sun 18.1" LCD. The problem is also present with only the
Blade. The Ultra 10 has no problem with the display.

Thanks in advance for the help.
