The problem is not the version of Linux, but your version of XFree86.
You need to get version 3.1.2D. Its located at ftp.xfree86.org, then
look in the paths for either beta or 3.1.2D, and grab the appropriate
Linux executables (either ELF or a.out). The server that you need to
get is the SVGA server. Please make sure you grab ALL of the needed
files, including the libraries, binaries, and configuration files. Its
going to take a while to get all of that downloaded, but if you want to
upgrade to 3.1.2E, you'll need them anyway. (No, 3.1.2E is not out yet,
but its coming) Once you have all of that, you should be able to use
the config program that comes with it to set up a XF86config file. Let
me know if you need any more help or have more questions.
