Warren, thank you, but this doesn't help. I've added:
Viewport 0 0
This is an LCD monitor, and the manuf. specs state
max res 1280x1024
I tried modes down to 800x600 - no change.
I noticed also this error:
(EE) [drm] drmOpen failed.
(EE) MACH64(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit Failed
should I add device drm to the kernel?
Just to remind, this is sparc64.

wow.. you mean on sparc64? I didn't know.
If it'll work on sparc, this would be great. There
are many more radeon 7000 on offer than pgx64.
many thanks as always
