I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to use the .debs for 4.2.0 on MIPS for
a while now. It can't find the modules pcidata and bitmap. Neither can
I! Actually, the whole "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules" directory does not
exist. Is this because of what you explain above? I think I'm getting
the "no modules at all" option, which isn't working out.

Is there an interm solution? I'd really like to get X working again!
