If you could post some details around that, I would be forever in your 
debt. I have an Xbox with what I think is a working version from SVN, 
but my xorg setup does not work, for the same reasons you mentioned. If 
I can fix the xorg driver, I think I will finally have a working Xbox 
frontend, but I've wasted so much time on it lately, I haven't been 
motivated to try and fix that problem.
