View Full Version : xorg.conf? Does it exist anymore?
8th August 2008, 02:06 AM
First of all, I'm getting the same errors as Leigh with Nvidia from his last post on that thread.
Just for the heck of it, I wanted to look at xorg.conf and it doesn't seem to exist anymore. Probably something somewhere in the release notes about that but don't remember seeing that.
Did they do away with xorg.conf?

If you run from live cd then there's no xorg by default. It's so at least since Fedora 8. Xorg can (and should) work without xorg.conf, but you can still put it into /etc/X11/ directory and X will 'pick it up'.

I installed Alpha on hard drive using boot.iso and network install because live install kept failing.
Sorry should have put that up front.

and... as I remember, When F8 live came out, I had to open xorg.conf on my work computer and change driver to X to even get it to start with X

I don't have an alpha-10 install to check, but you can run without an xorg.conf file for awhile. It will just use compiled-in defaults and try to autoconfigure all module bits. The default Fedora xorg.conf is very slim, letting the X server autoconfigure nearly everything in F9. You can try doing "sudo Xorg -configure" to have it create an xorg.conf file based on it's probing as a place to start from.
