What is it with people and not reading the links? Yes, if you look at
the patch it certainly looks like it makes the 8500 work. I don't know
personally, I own a 7500.
Strange you have problems with gnome, I installed XFree86 4.2.0 (from
source) in parallel with 4.1.0 and have had no problems whatsoever.
Sounds like those debs you are using are broken. X on debian is so
complicated I'd stick with Branden's...
