Fedora 9 ships with a prerelease version of xorg-server 1.5. This server has improved autoconfiguration that allows it to function without a configuration file. Because /etc/X11/xorg.conf
does not exist, nvidia-xconfig
will create an /etc/X11/XF86Config
file instead. While this will work, some people may find it confusing.
Unfortunately, xorg-server 188.8.131.521 removed support for the RgbPath
option, so X configuration files generated by nvidia-xconfig
will not work. For these servers, I recommended that you delete everything but the "Device"
section and leave the rest up to the X server's autoconfiguration:
Identifier "NVIDIA Device"
Future releases of nvidia-xconfig
will be better equipped to handle these minimalist configuration files.
