There is just one xserver for m68k, xserver-fbdev. (In fact there might be
some others, but they are, as I understnad, just dummy drivers, drivers to
test X functionality, but nothing you would want to work with as a user).

As for the other question wrt X4.0, browse my potato (or woody?) page,
somewhere there should be a link to the X4.0 status last time I looked at
it. As Branden said, you need to use xserver-fbdev from potato , as the new
one from X4.0 crashes on m68k. But with his new Mac, Branden might be able
to improve my patches to make it work in the long run.
I can not look up the link now as I only have access to a crappy sun, where
the only webbrowser is "webbrowser" (hotjava?) which does not really allow me
to look at many webpages. I am happy that I can use ssh...
