modules does not exist

Before reading your answer (thank you very much), I installed these 
packages from the server : xf86-input-keyboard, mouse, video-neomagic.
After that, I did links to wacom and synaptics when you suggested me, 
and because I couldn't find them on the server. Links goes from 
/lib/local/lib/X11/drivers to /lib/X11/drivers, but just for the wacom 
and the synaptics drivers.
Indeed, I used a .deb version, and I did not uninstall it. Is it dangerous ?

So, when I launch X, I haven't the same error message :
(EE) NEOMAGIC(0): No valid modes found
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
