X problems after update to Sarge


I am having several problems with X on my 68K system: Amiga 2000, GVP030 
combo card ( SCSI, 16M ram, 40 MHz).  X had been working properly under 
my Woody install but it has not worked properly since I updated my 
system to Sarge.

1. X will come up when I am logged in as root user with the startx 
command, but it will not come up automatically from reboot.  The 
XFree86.0.log shows that it cannot open the screen 0.

2. I have modified the X configuration files as decribed in the 
X-terminal howto, and my X-terminal shows the log on screen.  I can log 
on as the root user at the X terminal, but I cannot log on as a normal 
users.  The error message indicate the the keyboard could not be 
configured, causing X to abort.

3. What keyboard configuration should I be using in the XF86Config-4? I 
had been using this:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "amiga"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "usa1"
# cannot use uppercase from keyboard without the following:
        Option          "CustomKeycodes"
but given the error message that keyboard cannot be configured, I'm not 
sure if this is correct.  Taking away the Model Amiga and Layout usa1 
makes the error go away, but gives me a keyboard that is not usable.
Those items are listed in the /etc/X11/xkb... directory tree.

4. Relevant piece of /var/log/xdm.log

Could not init font path element /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo, removing

5. I have always goten the error about the Speedo font (even under 
Woody).  I am curious, what does this font do?  I have the speedo module 
checked in the XF86Config-4 files.

I have been at this a couple weeks need, believe I don't the dilligent 
Google earches and read the FAQ documentation.

Suggestions requested!
