didn't see it, sorry.

I ran into the same thing a week or so ago;

you want to know which package contains libXpm.so.4. I was missing some
of the libg++ stuff to start with too.
I think it's one of the xpm4.7 packages (I seem to have the libc5 ones,
even though I thought I'd got the glibc version of netscape)...

there was a post earlier today from Frank Barknecht to me that was
discussing it. the best approach would appear to be to recompile your
kernel with the make-kpkg utility, and to apply all the relevant awe
.deb packages too. I haven't tried that yet. Check his message for more
info. there's also an awe mini howto that you should read, available
you should get the isapnp stuff too (explained in howto). come back
with more specific questions if you get stuck. if I'm successful (in
the near future) I'll post a summary of what I did.
