I need xorg-server version 2: installed because it contains a fix:

xorg-server (2: natty; urgency=low

  * Add 207_dga_master_device.patch: Cherrypick from upstream xserver git
    to fix crash with a bluetooth keyboard when using XBMC full screen.
    (LP: #597895)

And I need that for my xbmc to work properly, but on my machine it shows: xorg-server 2:1.9.0-0ubuntu7.1 when I run X -version

Any ideas? I can't find any packages to install and apt-get says it's already the most current version...

The easiest way to get the fix is to use the xorg edgers PPA:

The PPA is built for testing and for fixing obscure bugs with certain releases. It currently has xorg version 2: and you may be looking for 902 instead of 901, but try it because it'll get you most of the way there and it's likely it'll be updated anyway.

What ever you do, don't compile yourself. If you feel the urge to DIY, please build some deb packages for yourself instead. More details here:
