Re: XVR-500 support in Lenny
Well, a google search turned up this page
(http://merkel.debian.org/~jurij/) which has the Debian kernel
The entry for 2.6.26-8 for sparc, "config-2.6.26-1-sparc64.gz
# CONFIG_FB_XVR500 is not set
# CONFIG_FB_XVR2500 is not set
Does that help?
[I was expecting to find information that tells me where the "config"
file details are contained on a running system (under /proc, I thought),
but I haven't found that, yet.... Perhaps that functionality isn't
available / compiled into the sparc kernels...]

Ah, please forget the question #2. Too late I realized I confused
Elite3D and Expert3D
cards. But the question #1 remains. Could anybody answer it?
2 questions regarding XVR-500 graphics card (in Sun Blade 2500):
1) looking into linux-image-2.6.26-1-sparc64 package (sid) I don't
see kernel modules for sunxvr500 nor sunxvr2500. Are they compiled-in
into the linux image or missing?
2) Have anyone succeeded to get XVR-500 to work with Xorg? I've gone
through all the steps mentioned on XorgOnSparc wiki page (lspci shows
3Dlabs Sun XVR-500 graphics accelerator, xserver-xorg-video-sunffb is
installed, microcode firmware loaded, sunffb in Xorg driver section
is set), but Xorg still complains "No devices detected".
