Gnome display power management broken in suse 9. 1


I've looked into gnome display power management and step one is editing Xf86config. When I have a look at that file, however, it says not to edit it since it's automatically generated by sax, yast's x configurator. Suggestions?

The fact that there's some text that says "don't edit" is just a warning in case you don't know what you're doing. If you're sure you actually have to modify the xf86 config file... then I think you should do it.

There might be some kind of visual tool to edit the config file within SuSE, which might delete what you edited if you run the configurator.

I think you should try and see what happens. Just keep a backup of the file, just in case.

No love

Well, I edited Xf86config as per the instructions here

and when I start up X, it kicks back an error saying that "DPMS" doesn't make any sense on that line. Suggestions?
