Did you try running through configuration manually? ( xf86config or 
XF86Setup )If you installed the svga xserver, you should have 

Were there any relevant outstanding dependency problems, or packages 
which weren't installed or configured correctly?  This would show up in 

When I first installed linux, my video card was unsupported in svga, so 
I used the vga16 xserver.  For testing purposes, it might be useful to 
see if that works.

If you don't like that idea, you might try uninstalling and 
reinstalling your svga xserver, going through configuration with 
xf86config or XF86Setup, looking at your /etc/X11/XF86Config file, 
assuming the man page shows up so you can see what it's supposed to

XFree86 Setup", but I don't see that anywhere.  Maybe someone else 
knows where that is?
