In Reply to: [gentoo-sparc] xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6 stable for sparc? by Ferris McCormick
Initially I thought this worked great, but I've run into a snag.

Leaving my xorg.conf configured like it was initially (-r4, kernel 2.4), 
I can't seem to VT-switch away from X.  The ability to switch is, as far 
as I can tell, simply gone.

Unless there's something that should have changed in xorg.conf in 
regards to the keyboard driver with the new -r6 version, I'm stumped as 
to what happened here.

FWIW, this is on an SMP U60, type 5 serial keyboard.
