attempt to find module
I saw in the xorg log that the modules should be coming from /usr/lib64/xorg.
This attachment shows what is in that tree. Also, doing a find shows that the
files are not present.
I apologize for this bug report. Turns out I have a flaky DVD drive. Replaced
it, and the install worked. So, this is a false alarm.
