check the kdmconfig file,
m64config -depth 24 -res 1024x768x75". Other suggestions are
"fbconfig -depth 24 -res 1024x768x75", and to edit "/etc/dt/config/Xservers"

OR simply try this
To set the resolution, run the following command as root:

# eeprom output-device=screen:r1280x1024x76

then reboot. Alternatively, halt the machine and type

ok setenv output-device screen:r1280x1024x76
ok reset

The m64config or fbconfig commands are SPARC specific.

On x86 H/W, Xorg is used. It is unclear what resolution you currently have. What graphic card are you using ? What screen (CRT or LCD) native resolution ?

Or Xsun (it's still there) which is configuured by using kdmconfig.

You are correct. Xsun is EOL though and will eventually be replaced by Xorg with SPARC H/W too.
