According to http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:R30, your R30 uses
a Trident display card. Those are pretty rare nowadays, so maybe it's
not auto-detected. In that case, maybe you need to create
a /etc/X11/xorg.conf which just contains:
Identifier "My sweet R30's video card"

Hard to say without more details about what it is that's irritating.
