dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg alternative on Lenny?


I installed Lenny beta 2. I'm trying to install and setup xserver, but it's not audodetecting my configuration right.

I tried #dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

But in Lenny that wizard does not bring driver options, etc... And xorg.conf is very small, without detailed options.

Anybody knows Is there any alternative to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg?

Regards,
Matías

Don't Xorg -configure or xorgconfig or xorgcfg work on Debian platforms?

Weibullguy,

Thanks for your response.
Fourtunatly Debian Lenny included #Xorg -configure as you said.
It helped my to setup xorg.conf right and now my X server is running.

I'm afraid autodetection routines may be failed in the old hardware I'm installing.

Thanks,
Matías

WBG, that is good news. I had the same problem (dpkg-reconfigure didn't reconfigure and xorg.conf was almost empty), but I was not smart enough to know these configuration programs existed. I am not fond at all about this all automatic configuration.

Thanks

All three of those are provided by X Windows (the Xorg version anyway). Seems to me it's best to use the native configuration programs. Anyway, glad you're windowed.
