13:39 - Debian X.org notes - Autoconfiguration with xserver-xorg-core 1.3
Thanks to Xserver 1.3 autoconfiguration, very few lines are required in /etc/X11/xorg.conf now. Only the following might be required:
- Module section if the default modules are not ok with you (it should)
- keyboard InputDevice section to choose your keymap (unless american qwerty is ok for you)
- Device section if you really need a specific option such as EXA, ...
- Screen section with Display subsection for a Virtual line for xrandr multiple heads
- Screen section to change the default depth
- DRI section if you don't want DRI devices to be available to all users (default mode is 666 now)
- Extensions section to enable Composite (for AIGLX stuff such as Compiz)
Actually, it is possible to just remove the xorg.conf file entirely, Xserver 1.3 will probably boot anyway and give you a working setup (apart from the US keyboard layout).
