Simple question: Do most of the Xorg video drivers only support x86 platforms? I can get a few ATi cards working in the machine just fine, but any others (savage, sis) cause X to bail with unresolved symbols. Typical example:

Symbol fbOverlayGetScreenPrivateIndex from module /usr/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o is unresolved!
Symbol fbSetupScreen from module /usr/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o is unresolved!
Symbol fbOverlayFinishScreenInit from module /usr/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o is unresolved!
Symbol fbOverlayGetScreenPrivateIndex from module /usr/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o is unresolved!
Symbol vbeFree from module /usr/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o is unresolved!
Symbol XAAGetScreenIndex from module /usr/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o is unresolved!

I was reading about some of the drivers needing x86 BIOS calls to work, but I can't verify this anywhere. Google hasn't helped me any. I can't find any notes in the driver sources. Am I wasting my time with unusable hardware combinations? (X.org 6.8.2)
