Default Updates for xorg-server and higher and Fedora 9

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 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:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "NVIDIA Device"
    Driver         "nvidia"
Future releases of nvidia-xconfig will be better equipped to handle these minimalist configuration files.
