[Newbies] squeak on ubuntu linux

We have an Intel dual core 64 bit server where we installed Ubuntu 7.04

We are all new in Squeak/Smalltalk; but we managed to develop a small
Seaside app in Squeak (on Windows XP) using Squeak 3.9 and Seaside 2.7

We would now like to install this image on the linux server and run seaside
there, under Apache.

I read quite a few of posts and Ramon Leon's blog on how to get a
squeak/seaside headless vm working on Linux; but we are all but confused;
and didn't manage to get anywhere.


1.       Do we need x-windows, or not (we will not do development on the
linux server)?

2.       Is there a squeak vm we can download  or do we have to build from
source for Intel dual-core? ( we tried both versions and neither works)

The debian packages at:

 http://ftp.squeak.org/debian/ stable main

don't seem to work for linux running on intel dual core and we downloaded
Squeak-3.9-8.i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.tar from http://www.squeakvm.org/unix/


With this last one installed we get the error: 

"could not find module vm-display-X11"

When we run:

squeak -headless groupinvestment.image

(where groupinvestment.image is our Windows build image containing seaside
and our web site)


And when we run:

squeak -nodisplay groupinvestment.image

we get:

Segmentation fault
