its /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. which graphics card do you have?
i have a nvidia 7800 gtx pcie card
i'll try the command again
just did the command and it worked. i see my drivers r "nv" and in the past these drivers havent worked. i've used the "versa" drivers and they have worked perfectly. how do i install the versa drivers?
vesa drivers are generic. edit xorg.conf file and set Driver to "vesa" in Vedio Driver section.
you have to edit xorg.conf file only and Xserver will load it. all video drivers are in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers folder.
