Question Why are xorg modules unloaded ?


Hi !

It happens sometimes, and I wonder why :
UnloadModule: "fbdev"

Sometimes it's not following an explicit error.
Is it really a "tried, not ok, unloading" ?

Do you want to use fbdev? You can force loading it in xorg.conf. But you really need it only with very old graphics cards that are not supported by Xorg any more.

It's not fbdev specific, it's a general question about this kind of output in the logs.

X server is probing all drivers to match the hardware, this is the way it loads. Finally it ends up with best driver present in the system or exits with an error if no suitable driver is found.

Is there a way to make the log output more verbose ?

In a traditional setup one could put -logverbose <level> into ~/.xserverrc ... nowadays I do not know, depends how your X is started. Different desktop environments and login managers may (or may not) ignore ~/.xserverrc.
