Hi Peter

You should download SVGA.tgz in the MISC area of muLinux homepage.
This is the easiest way to configure your display to higher
Then you should edit the file (/usr/X11R6/lib/X11)

If your binary is statically linked I guess it should work with
muLinux (at least some managed to run statically linked programs)
