if you don't know how to apply a patch, you may just delete following line 
in src/qxl_driver.c line 1234, then recompile it 

    assert (((struct qxl_mode *)p->Private)->x_res == p->HDisplay);
    assert (((struct qxl_mode *)p->Private)->y_res == p->VDisplay);

you have not install xserver-xorg-dev, so you may not compile the dpkg 
package.  if the first methord works, please forgot this one.
