Howdy,

I am using FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE with xorg 6.8.2 installed on an Ultra
Enterprise 2 with a Creator3D series 3 card and (non-USB)type6 keyboard =
with
crossbow mouse.=20

I would like to know if there are any guides to setting up xorg to run =
on
the sparc platform. I have tried google, but I just can't find any
documentation in regards to sparc. I found an X11R6 on SPARC FAQ, but it
should be more appropriately titled X11R6 on SOLARIS. I have been up and
down the various mail list archives, but haven't found a definitive =
"THIS
WORKS!"

I have run X -configure and this tells me to run 'X -config
/root/xorg.conf.new'. When I run this, it loads X up to the grey screen =
with
the x cursor in the middle and freezes. I can usually =
Control+Alt+Backspace
out of this back to console. The Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Compose =
keys
light up but the Num Lock does not.=20

=20

If I hit Caps Lock on the console, the same keys light up and stick on.
However, I can toggle Caps Lock on and off. The lights just stay on.

I have run xorgcfg to similar results. It loads into X, then a small =
window
pops up, the screen goes black, goes back into X and then freezes. I =
can't
even Control+Alt+Backspace out of this. I log in via ssh and kill X to =
get
out.

xorgconfig seems to be i386centric, so that's been a dead end.

=20

I have experimented with changing the keyboard, mouse, and framebuffer
settings in the config files, but the results are always the same. I =
used
http://people.freebsd.org/~jake/XF86Config as a guide, but I have also =
tried
some of the settings other people have used in the mailing list.

=20

I have read of previous problems with similar set ups, especially the =
type6,
but those were generally for older versions of FreeBSD and/or xorg.

Thanks for your time.
