I'm going to try the second choice, leaving them in /opt/modularand do 'ln -s /opt/modular/bin/Xorg /usr/bin/X'Do I need add /opt/modular/lib to /etc/ if I compile xserver with prefix=/usr by Do I need to compiledriver and font? Or, just compile proto, lib, mesa, app and xserver?Because I think the new xserver can use the drivers of the original xserver.s In my original xserver, xorg.conf doesn't set the path of the keyboard and mouse,but keyboard and mouse work. In my new xserver, if I didn't set the path of thekeyboard, it wouldn't work. Now, the keyboard works in my new xserver afterI set the path in xorg.conf. However, no mattar how I set the path of the mouse,it won't work. I set the path as /dev/input/by-path/xxxxxxx-mouse in xorg.conf.In Xorg.0.log, it said it couldn't find device which matchs 'mouse'.Why the mouse and keyboard work in my original xserver without setting inxorg.conf???
