xorg.conf files not running properly in arch linux


They Guys I seem to be having a problem getting my xorg.conf file to work, I can't seem to be getting that X in the middle of my screen as they are telling me that I would. Here is a copy of my config file.

Your display sections are fine.
Do you have hal running and added to your daemons list and did you depmod -a?
You also may not get just an X but 3 small windows.
There are also several ways to get X started.
What always worked best for me was as user,,, startx.
