I did some hacking on my wife's Ultra1 and ended up with a
wsdisplay-compliant, accelerated cgsix driver, keyboard and so on (
keyboard is still quirky but it works, sort of ). It's still somewhat
messy but I'll clean it up in the next couple of days. To my surprise
XFree86 just worked after some fiddling with XF86Config so it might be
a good idea to have the SBus framebuffer drivers in XFree86 built on
sparc64 - by default it built only the ati driver.
XFree's cgsix driver ( suncg6 ) is unaccelerated but usable, at least
it uses the hardware cursor. Adding acceleration shouldn't be too hard
though, there are other, sufficiently simple drivers one could use as
examples and then there's Xsun.
