create an image with /etc/X11/xorg.conf or without?


hi

I'm creating a squeeze image, it should be installed on about 20 workstations, the same PC's, but different monitors.
Is is a good idea to create /etc/X11/xorg.conf, or is it better to prepare without?

For Squeeze you shouldn't need a xorg.conf at all. Only exception is when you are using a proprietary driver, but then you can omit the monitor section and Xorg should detect the monitor automatically.
