XFree86 Version 4.0.2 / X Window System (protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6400) Release Date: 18 December 2000 [...] (==) ModulePath set to "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules" (--) using VT number 7 (II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libbitmap.a (II) Module XFree86 Font Renderer: vendor="XFree86 Font Renderer" compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0 (II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libpcidata.a (II) Fatal server error: Caught signal 11. Server abortingSo right now it is not necessary to install this package (unless maybe you want to help fixing this problem).
However, you can install/upgrade all the client packages and install the xserver-fbdev package from 3.3.6. To make this server work with X4.0, you have to fix two things by-hand.
You need to make the new (old) xserver known. As root do:
cd /etc/X11 mv X X4 # backup the old X, move it back once xserver-xfree86 works ln -s /usr/bin/X11/XF68_FBDev X # point X to the old xserver-fbdevNext you need to move the XF86Config to a place where the new packages look for it. As root do:
cp /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/This config file should be still left from your old 3.3.6 X11 installation. If you don't have that one anymore, you might get it, ie from xserver-common_3.3.6-11potato15_m68k.deb (in potato-proposed-updates) or from here.
