I had the same problem.  There are many models of the Mach64, and mine
was not one that was recognized by the XFree86 server that comes with
debian (version 3.1.2).

Lurking around comp.os.linux.x, I found out there is a version 3.1.2B
server that recognizes my Mach64.

All I had to do was replace the server executable.  The 3.1.2B server
can be found at
