XF86Config-4 and xorg.conf


ok I have went through all the ATI driver setup stuff except for this last part. I generated the XF86Config-4 file already in /etc/X11. Now what do I do? I know I have to somehow "merge" XF86Config-4 with xorg.conf but exactly how is this done? Do I just copy and paste XF86Config-4 contents into the bottom of xorg.conf or do I just rename XF86Config-4 to xorg.conf and delete my old xorg.conf? help please!

because when I reboot right now I still have the vesa driver...

just rename them.

like:

#mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.old
#mv XF86Config-4 xorg.conf

...and restart X.

try:

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.back
ln -s /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/xorg.conf

[edit]
Well.. You have two ways at least
