It's been a while since I used X11 on NetBSD/sparc64. At least back
then it worked quite well right out of the box. Though, I had to fidle
with the microcode of the UPA framebuffer. (Copyright problem...) But I
think this has changed in the meantime.

Depending on the version of the mainboard in your U10 you may be
limited to 1 MB of video RAM. Almost certainly you will be better with
the UPA framebuffer. As noted, you can use a LCD with VGA input on the
UPA framebuffer, provided that you can find a suitable 13W3 to VGA

If you really wane try NetBSD I highly recommend to use the 6.0 Beta:

I instaled it on my Netra a few days ago and it works well.
