You are probably better off going forward. I could not get X to
work with kernel 2.6.26, but has been working fine with the
following configuration and a generic xorg.conf on my ultra 5.
$ Xorg -version
X.Org X Server 188.8.131.521 (1.6.2 RC 1)
Release Date: 2009-5-8
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: Linux 184.108.40.206-dsa-usii sparc Debian
Current Operating System: Linux ultra5 2.6.30-1-sparc64 #1 Wed Jul 8
01:18:17 UTC 2009 sparc
Build Date: 14 May 2009 04:50:27PM
xorg-server 2:220.127.116.111-2 (buildd@spontini)
The only problem I have with kernel 2.6.30 is with any CD-ROM
device, but that's another story.
