Re: X on ultra sparc 30
I found a script on the net somewhere called video_detect, and it turns
out that the right driver was sunffb. Worked great under woody, but
when I upgraded to testing, the driver was no longer available, After
some work/time, I was able to grab the right drivers from the unstable
branch, and get it working, however ended up having troubles with
keyboard and mouse as well. A little work get them going too, and now
all seems well. Maybe this issue should be dealt with a little better
in the stable and testing branches. Or I suppose it is being dealt
with. Im not much of a coder or I would offer some assistance, but I
am certainly willing to be a tester.
Anyways, all seems to be working quite well, not sure if this
card supports dri or not, but thats not really an issue since this
machine's purpose is going to be a postgresql server running sql-ledger
and apache2. I appreciate all help again in getting this going?
Should this be submitted as a bug somewhere? or maybe it already has
Sincerely thanks for all help,

Could it be a (surprise) creator graphics card?
Is it in one of the two UPA slots rather than one of the PCI slots?
Does it have a 13w3 connector or hd15?
What is the part number? (look for a number starting with 502 or 302,
the part number is 502-xxxx (It may have more digits or letter suffix,
Most likely it is some varient of a creator or elite graphics card.
These all use the sunffb driver, but some of them require afbinit to
be run first.
