xorg.conf file problem

Hello there,

I have just installed Fedora Core 6 on my old machine. I had to twinkle and friddle quite a bit to have all my graphic card and so on running. I manage to install everything, and the system works fine.

My question comes from the fact that into my friddling, I had to change some settings in my xorg.conf file. The changes made the machine run the way I like it (which is as fast as possible). Everytime I reboot my system, there is an another xorg.conf file that replaces the one I made.

Here comes my question. How can I set my xorg.conf file not to be replace at bootup????

Thanks for the answer.

I think in some situation the xorg configuration will re-run during boot if there is an error. I would think thats what is happening. It shouldn't otherwise get run.

You could try to re-install the driver for your card. What card is it by the way?

Hi there,

The xorg.conf file is reconfigured every time I reboot my system. I did reinstall the driver for my graphics card and all the necessary packages that goes along with it.

I have an old dell system with a nVidia Riva TNT2 graphic card.

The problem is not a big deal. I just copy the right xorg.conf file every time I reboot the system. I'll even find a way that this is done automatically (when I have a bit more time to spare). I just thought that there must be a simpler way.
