Will my XF86Config file work in place of xorg.conf file
I just last night re installed a fresh copy of Debian Sarge to my notebook and then I did a dist-upgrade to Etch. Needless to say I did things a little different this time as to keep my installed packages to a minimum.
Well, after about an hour of picking and choosing packages, I installed them and the X11 packages didnt install Xfree86, but instead they install x.org -- it has never done this before, but since it already did it I figured what the hell, it never hurts to learn something new.
Anyways, so I spent the rest of the night getting all my smaller things working (kernel 18.104.22.168, wifi, nic, sound, etc etc etc) and then I went to bed without attempting to configure my synaptics mouse or the display stuff in the xorg.conf file.
Right now everything works fine in vesa mode at 1024x768, but ultimately i want to get my ATI drivers working with xorg.conf so I can get my real res I want (1280x800) with accelleration and all that junk. I also have my synaptics mouse configurations in my old XF86Config file that I will need to work in xorg.
Anyways... To make a long story short. Can I just rename my XF86Config file to xorg.conf and expect everything to work? Or does xorg.conf have different config layouts and stuff?
Any extra info I should know about xorg configuration before I go home tonight and start working on it? I've never used xorg before in my life... Is this going to be a hard switch for me? etc etc.
