For this system I do not have any experience. However, for others to help you
you should also supply information about the used kernel version and Debian
variant (stable/unstable), especially the X packages used.
I know about problems with X and the keyboard for Debian unstable on the Acorn
RiscPC if a 2.4 kernel is used. Symptoms are that console switching from X
via ctrl-alt-function key does not work, and some keys (including m) are not
working. These problems vanish if a 2.6 kernel is used. (Does anyone know
what is the reason?) So if you are using a 2.4 kernel, you could try 2.6 if
it is possible for your system.
However, you report that most of the time you are not able to start X and it
returns an error. Can you specify the error more precisely (output
Sometimes it starts. This behaviour can also be caused by general stability
problems of your system (memory timing, power supply) or a bug in a kernel
driver, possibly the framebuffer driver.
