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.
