3DLabs Permedia II 2D+3D console problem

Im running the current stable debian. With the 2.4.27-2-sparc64-smp
kernel the console works very well and it displays two pengiuns in color
and the normal boot messages. When i try the vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-sparc64-smp
kernel it goes blank just after:

Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 80x30

I have tried to set the resolution in the firmware to something
resonable with
setenv output-device screen:r1024x768x60.

I have also tried to change it with the fbset command. Whatever i to try
with fbset it just accepts it but when i check with "fbset -v" it still
is at the default 640x480-60. And no change on the actuall console. The
fbset command is run via ssh since the console
isnt working.

The machine is an Enterprise 250 dual sparcII 400mhz, and the display
controller is the 3DLabs Permedia II 2D+3D (rev 01).

I lack more ideas on how to get the console working (with the 2.6
Any pointers are happily accepted.
