I forwarded John's message.  Maybe that will help.

BTW.  Another X-server, though not very stable, based upon Karra's DirectX framebuffer X-server source code and XFree86 3.9,18 will be released within next couple of
days.  i will combine XGGI, and the new X-server binaries into a single binary distribution tar-ball.  The new distribution will have fonts problems fixed.
