RE: xfree86 4.2.0-0pre1v2 (source,i386) available at the X Strike Force
the changelog says:
* TODO: mips wants to build the server modules as shared objects instead of
static ones; why?
because the ELF loader doesn't work on mips yet(and shared object
modules are better than no modules at all since it reduces linking time
a lot when doing driver work). I have started to work on the ELF loader
but there's quiet some work to do left. Feel free to disable modules at
all on mips for the moment.
