Xorg.conf Server flag what is it?


Hey guys,

Can't seem to get a definition of "Server flag" on Google, I was looking though My Xorg.conf file and it came up with a "server Flag" section, I don't know what this is...

What does it do, what Purpuse does it have within the Linux system

A server is defined as:

A computer that delivers information and software to other computers linked by a network.

A flag is defined in IT terms as:

In computer programming, a flag is a Boolean variable, a bit that can be set to either 1 (Set, Raised, True) or 0 (Unset, False). Its typical use is as a status variable, or for configuration.

So...

Does a server flag deal with the X server Configuration in Linux?

Could someone go into detail on this please, I don't understand

Also could someone define the "files" section of the Xorg.conf. it has somthing to do with file behavious but what exactly
(also googled this, to no avail)

thank you very much,

Jake

everything in xorg.conf, the X server configuration file, deals with the configuration of the X server the server flags section will just enable server wide options that don't necessarily fit within a screen or device or other section on the config. the fiels section lists places to find files that are needed by the server, e.g. color databases.

thanks for that, to be honest that deffinition of mine didn't make much sense to me, but it was the closest I could get. Unfortunatly I made an educated guess that was wrong

So sorry for such a noob question
