Tried to find xserver-common with dselect and with apt-get, but was unable
to locate it.  Loaded instead xserver-vga16.  Afterwards ran XF86Setup and
got this:

maui:/usr/X11R6/bin# export PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin
maui:/usr/X11R6/bin# which XF86Setup
maui:/usr/X11R6/bin# XF86Setup
Couldn't read card database file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Cards

What now?
