    Default No xorg.conf file

    I just noticed something strange with my 11.2 rc1 installation. I can't seem to find my "xorg.conf" anywhere. It's not at root/etc/X11 nor any other locations.

    Is this possible?

    Yes, it is possible with X-server >= 1.6.

    If you run sax2 from a su term it will create one though.

    I was quite amazed. Just installed the NVIDIA driver, no sax2 or nvidia-xconfig, just init 5 && exit, works. Ascpecially amazed about the Wacom tablets: plug in, work.

    I found that to be the case with 11.1 as well with my Intuos4 - but in
    the end I did end up building a patched version of the wacom.ko kernel
    driver (for support for uploading images to the OLED displays - it's a
    very new patch created week before last).

    Out of curiosity, is hotplug supported in what's in 11.2?

    Thanks guys. I'll try the "sax2" command.

    Any reason for that?

    Is there something not working as expected?

    If anything is OK, then why create a xorg.conf which is not needed any more?

    Interestingly I just installed the nvidia driver, did sax2 (habbit I suppose) and it didn't work. Installation went fine but the driver wouldn't work. I read this thread and rename xorg.conf, rebooted and now my driver's working fine. Amazing.. Just deleted all xorg.conf.* files and it's still working.

    Very happy now

    So,Gumper, try and rename your xorg.conf something else and reboot your machine. That might get it working if the nvidia installer says all went well.

    I think you are drawing the wrong conclusion, or doesn't it look like it works _because_ you did not use the now obsolete way with xorg.conf/sax2?

    This thread should be linked to all those people complaining, whining and even calling the developers/maintainers who decided to obsolete sax2 (without removing it, so it is still there as a fallback option!) "morons" and "stupid".
