X frozen on Compaq Armada 4131T


I have installed Debian 3.0r1 on this old laptop (the graphic chip is
Cirrus Logic GD7548) and have problems with xfree86. After running
'XFree86 -configure' I got a working config file and copied it to
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 (this is a first step of course, fine tuning will
be later). Now I can run 'XFree86' as root and get a grey rectangular with
mouse cursor, can move the cursor and finally kill the server with
Crtl-Alt-Backspace. Starting X with 'startx' command however, results in
the same image as before but then laptop doesn't react to any key or mouse
movement. The only access to the machine is via network, so using 'ps' I
can see that x-window-manager has started.  Trying to bypass all the
configuration scripts I also used 'xinit' (without any arguments, so xterm
should be called) but no luck again -- everything stopped, 'ps' tells me
that X and xterm are running. The result is the same for root and
normal user. The log file (XFree86.0.log) doesn't contain any informations
about errors or warnings. Any idea where should I look next? 
Thanks in advance for any help.
