mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup
ln -sf XF86Config-4 xorg.conf
...but when I restart X I can't get a display, and here's the diagnostics.
I know my mouse is failing in there too, but first things first! My display takes priority over my input device. To this end I've highlighted the relevant part of the diag

I'm unable to get much support from the Rage3d'ers on this so I'm hoping you guru's might be of some help.
