1.7 Graphics

Certain guest platforms can run X11 directly in the TME emulated framebuffer. In particular, I’ve successfully run X with versions of NetBSD/sparc <= 5.2.3 on sun4c. With 6.0, the move to wscons seems to have caused issues with running the graphics. This is because of some bugs in the bwtwo/cgthree drivers. I have patched these in my own copies to allow it to run and will provide precompiled kernels at some point. In the meantime, the patches can be viewed with NetBSD bug report #49639.

The cgthree patch has been incoporated into NetBSD as of version 8.0. The bwtwo patch was incoporated into NetBSD 9.0.
