I see.

Yes I currently use them!
They are very good, but my problem has nothing to do with packaging 4.0.1,
but the flicker of the driver or agpgart or x4.0.1 svga server

I see. it's all good, we are happy to hear that.
Unfortunatelly, I couldn't compile xfree3.3.6, although I installed
everithing that you mention in the control file.
It fails on xfs.
Could you just send me a binary xserver-svga*.deb with that patch?
I cannot use this machine at all for X yet.
I downloaded the binary X server from intel, but that was able to run only
in 320x200/8 , too.

X 4.0.1 of yours runs fine in the mean of resolutions, but that flickers
so hard on ide access on any refresh rate, that we are unable to use it.
I wrote a bugreport to linuxkernel and xfree guys, but no answer yet.

I'm afraid I will not be able to configure / set up x 3.3.6 with this hw.
There is no agpgart in 2.2.17 i guess, only by patch.
