The patches to fix the xserver on Alpha have just gone through to the 1.7
nominations branch. Expect 1.7.1, when it is released, to contain them.
I have a patched 1.7.0 Xserver running on a Compaq XP1000 with a Radeon
9200 card and on a PWS600au with a Radeon HD2400 card. DRI is also
fixed -- it must be about the first time in three years that DRI has
worked on Alpha.
Unfortunately Alpha disappears from Debian testing just before we get
a working Xserver...
