Not sure what side effects there might be with adding Options to xorg.conf file settings . . . that really says it ALL
. . . at least from my experiences.
But still, experimenting with /etc/X11/xorg.conf
files for the mouse and/or sound driver settings seems more direct than HAL . . .
you make the xorg.conf change (ok . . . more like experiment
). . . and then go back to look at what happened
and search in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
file for the warnings . . .
But yeah . . . the side effects
. . . you get used to it maybe . . .
and well, if you aren't
prone to drinking, you may well be on that path afterwards -
so, no . . . experiments with xorg.conf won't make it into any 12-step programs.
