Example of Configuration
(Page 1 of 8)

Executing from the administrator (root) account the command:

xf86config

xf86config uses a text based command line interface to gather to appropriate information and build a new configuration file. The other tool uses a GUI interface and is somewhat easier to use but for a new configuration, the xf86config is a 'safer' tool.

This program will create a basic XF86Config file, based on menu selections you make.

The XF86Config file usually resides in /usr/X11R6/etc/X11 or /etc/X11. A sample XF86Config file is supplied with XFree86; it is configured for a standard VGA card and monitor with a 640x480 resolution. This program will ask for a pathname when it is ready to write the file.

You can either take the sample XF86Config as a base and edit it for your configuration, or let this program produce a base XF86Config file for your configuration and fine-tune it.

Before continuing with this program, make sure you know what video card you have, and preferably also the chipset it uses and the amount of video memory on your video card. SuperProbe may be able to help with this.
