It seems that I haven't got the hang on Xfree on debian yet.

Now I'm updating another machine from RH6.2 to debian woody and I stumbled 
on the same issue as before.

This is an U2SMP with a Creator 3D (series 3).

This time I selected sunffb and manually configured che config file to 32 

Same behaviour as SS20/SX, i.e. no X running. This was tested with kernel 
2.2.20 and 2.4.18.

fbset reports: mode "1024x864-113", tried a resolution of 1024x864 with no 
difference in output.

Are there some other issues with the Creator ?

Is woody fatally flawed on sparc? Is sid any better in relation to getting 
X running (4.2 rather than 4.1) ?

Any comment will be appreciated as the transition to debian is getting 
bloodier by the machine.
