Re: Debian Sparc 5.4 on Sun blade 2500

Hello Paul,

I assume your Sun Blade has XVR-500 graphics card and you are running X11. If
it's so, I have unfortunately bad news for your as the glitch is a known issue
which is not apparently going to be fixed anytime soon.
At the moment, there is no XVR driver for X11, "only" reverse-engineered kernel
driver aiming at fast and comfortable work in text mode.
If you really need GUI, get yourself a XVR-100.
