Thanks for the reply, I tried all of those (as root and as user) and I get command not found
Then I tried # Xorg -configure
which ran something as my screen flickered and returned with :
Xorg is not able to detect your mouse.
Edit the file and correct the Device.
Then I ran X -xf86config /root/xorg.conf.new
and I get
[root@linuxbox jdier]# X -xf86config /root/xorg.conf.new
