As I told you before, xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk doesn't ship the fbdev
driver. You'd have to use XFree86.nodri-trunk or uninstall xserver-
xfree86-dri-trunk to use it.

Might be related to the DRI, try disabling it for now by commenting out
the Load "dri" line.

BTW, the mga DRM is useless for you, you couldn't have loaded it in the
first place with a 2.6 kernel or the DRM built from drm-trunk-module-

AGP was traditionally unstable on r128. If the X server starts up with
the DRI disabled, try not loading agpgart or Option "ForcePCIMode" in X.
If that also works, you can try a 2.6 kernel or the DRM built from drm-
trunk-module-src with AGP.

Excerpts from the log file would be more useful in the future.
