Respectable mission, there must have been some -moments

I am a bit lost on where the files actually are after all the linked directories around the X installation but good to know that there is actually nothing missing, it just needs to be manually set.

Also, in /etc/profiles, there are actually two PATH statements. one for the root account, and one to be used for other accounts.
I was indeed missing the second PATH statement, fixing that and copying the XsvgaConfig from root user fixed and now it works on regular user account, too.

Thanks again!

I added some of these tips to the Amix wiki's article on X11PicassoII so hopefully most of this will be available in one place.
