I've had some luck using the XF86_SVGA server from XFree86 3.3.4, and
specifically using the binary from the tarball from xfree86.org. I
have had no luck using any of the Debian-packaged X servers, nor with
any more recent X server.
The only thing is, this server seems to have about a 50% chance of
failure on restart, where "failure" means "takes down entire system
with it". So now I'm using the XF86_FBDev server, which is actually
giving more or less equivalent performance at the cost of a much worse
refresh rate (43 Hz interlaced vs. 60Hz noninterlaced). You might try
reading the kernel documentation for 2.2.* kernels or look at the
