I finally stumbled around and got X working on this thing. I had to
use sunffb as the device, set the mouse device to /dev/sunmouse, and change

Got a modeline, anyone?
It turns out you have to do it through OBP commands; I don't recall the
exact format, but you can force a resolution on the output device for the
ffb. (There is a frame buffer handbook on the sun web site, and there is
a Creator manual. Between them, they will give you what ffb is capable
of. You have to match your monitor to something ffb can do, and go from
there in my experience.)
Mode lines will not help. sunffb ignores them, and uses whatever ffb is
Sorry I don't have more information at hand, but I hope this helps some.
Any pointers on how to upgrade the kernel to 2.6 would be appreciated
In my experience, on U2 very carefully. It's not quite stable.
