via_drv.o : unknown symbol vgaHWGetIndex

This is what I get when I try and start the X server using the via driver for my EPIA Cle266-based (Unichrome) onboard graphics chipset:
unknown symbol vgaHWGetIndex
This is just after I installed Thac's Xorg and Xorg-mesa packages from his 2006.0 repository for my PC running Mandriva 2006.

How can I solve this? I currently have to run the "vesa" driver, which is not the fittest for playing DVDs...

Solved! The packager told about a bug in this XOrg release, and removed those RPMs from his repository. I downgraded to the RPMs from previous build, and all is OK.
