Savage Exa Screen Error

I have a ProSavage kn133 with 16 Meg shared Memory on an HP pavilion 1230
laptop.  I'm not sure what the LCD is so I use Generic 1024x768.  To get to
the point, I've built xorg rpms for fedora core 4.  I have DRI
enabled and that works great.  I applied the savage-exa.diff patch to the
savage drivers and included the correct savage_exa.c and savage_xaa.c. 
That has built and installed fine, but when I use the Option "AccelMethod"
"exa" the screen comes up with the cursor, freezes it in place, and in the
top left corner there is a small pixel box that seems to be the whole
screen pushed up there.  So it looks like there is a screen printing
problem.  There are no error in the Xorg.0.log file, in fact it gives me a
successful loading of exa and all other options.  My question is if I
should be using an actual driver for my LCD which is giving the error, or
if exa for savage just isn't all ready.  Thanks ahead of time.
