    Default questions regarding xorg.conf

    HI all, has been a while since have posted on here. Have installed suse 12.1 on a p4 machine and it has an ati radeon 7000 agp graphics card. I know that it will use the generic radeon driver, but would like to tweak configuration for better performance under kde. Now it seems things have changed with regards to configuring graphics cards and x.org.conf file!

    If someone can just confirm what have found out: that the xorg.conf file no longer exists? Is now located under /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf?

    If this is now so, how does on add in extra configuration options for the graphics card now?
    Freedom is power, all i have to do is know how to use it.

    The file exists if you create it. :-)
    And it is used then.

    Those files are another method of doing the same, and several small files make for easier handling
    by the packager.

    You can add the same options in this file that you would use in the Device section of xorg.conf ... or you can create /etc/X11/xorg.conf with a Device - and probably a Monitor section.
