The built-in debian way to update XF86Config-4 is 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86'. While i can see some folks preferring to edit by hand (and of course sometimes this is necessary), i'm advocating dpkg-reconfigure (here in olympia). 2 reasons: the dpkg-reconfigure is more friendly, less error prone, can resolve most issues; and editing XF86Config-4 by hand disables the functionality of dpkg-reconfigure, so think it's best left to those who would have the knowledge to diagnose harder X problems (and be able to re-enable dpkg-reconfigure). (Ugh, it's ugly stuff, but...) At least it deserves a mention on this page. --baxrob 00:56, 25 Aug 2005 (PDT)

It overwrites what Magix wrote.
