The only solution I have found to running X on the Amiga is one that was
posted in the past.  If you extract the server from 
xserver-fbdev_3.3.6-11potato32.deb and place it in /usr/X11R6/bin and
then link /etc/X to it and use the example configuration from the docs
for that server it works.

I extracted it like this;

dpkg -x xserver-fbdev_3.3.6-11potato32.deb /home/whatever

which gives you a usr directory under the home directory and then you
can go in there and get what you need.

It is the only solution I have found that works.  Use fvwm or twm for a
window manager, not the desktops kdm or gnome.  They'll really show you
how slow and low on ram a stock amiga 4000 is.  They run, but you'll get
gray hairs waiting on it.  Same for Mozilla.
