In order to track down my own problem I've been looking through the
.debs for some of the other Architectures. The xserver-xfree86 debs for
the others I have looked at contain the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules directory
and a whole lot of module files. The xserver-xfree86 deb for mips has
none of these. Has something gone wrong with the build? Am I right that
these files are missing in error and should have been included?
Is there something I can do to help fix this? If the debs need to be
rebuilt, I'm willing to give it a go - although I've never built one
before so it may be a bit of a learning curve!
Thanks for the help.
