Well I had the same problem with an ATI 3d charger, and the quick fix is to
pick up 3.3.2 from www.xfree86.org in a .tgz and drop the executable right
into /usr/X11R6/bin (actually I left the old Debian one, added xfree's and
suse's, and made .../XF86_Mach64 a link to the one I want). Just check
that your /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config is a link to /etc/X11 because the
one you pick up won't have this debianisation.
