Hp Omnibook Xe2 siliconmotion Xorg configuration

I recently installed Arch on an old Omnibook Xe2 in order to get SOME functionality out of it. Everything's fine until I decided to set up the X server.
The laptop uses silicon motion graphics and supports 1024x768 with a depth of 24, so I installed the xf86-video-siliconmotion driver.

However, after attempting to set up the Xorg.conf file to properly work with it, I'm greeted by a black screen, and no immediate errors within my xorg log.

Is there a way to get this to work?

Current xorg.conf:

Section "device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver        "siliconmotion"
    Option        "HWCurser"      "true"
    Option        "VideoKey"      "45000"
    Option        "UseBIOS"       "false"
    Option        "PanelSize"     "1024x768"
    Option        "AccelMethod"   "EXA"
#    Option        "NoAccel"
EndSection
 
Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor       "Configured Monitor"
    Device        "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth    16
    SubSection "Display"
        Virtual   1024 768
        Depth       16
       EndSubSection
    Subsection "Display"
        Virtual   1024 768
        Depth       24
       EndSubSection
EndSection

Edit: I tried starting X over ssh, and noticed this tidbit from the ssh log

/usr/bin/X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/siliconmotion_drv.so: undefined symbol: miInitializeBackingStore
