Livina-nvidia bugzilla response I don't understand ??



Hi;

I received the following response to a bug report I filed with livna

http://bugzilla.livna.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2106

I am not sure whether I am mis-interpreting or that the suggestions are
a non-fix.

"# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
[file shown on " http://pastey.net/96653";]
Ah, that would be why - nvidia-xconfig and livna-config-display tend not
to play nicely together for a few 
reasons... Essentially, I recommend either telling livna-config-display
to stop editing configuration files or 
removing the Files section and reboot to let livna-config-display
autoconfigure the xorg.conf.

Essentially, this is because to make sure everything works properly and
that the nVidia libraries don't 
overwrite the stock ones, we shuffled file locations a bit compared to
the nVidia installer. nvidia-xconfig 
expects things to be installed as they would from the nVidia installer,
so it's best to disable livna-config-
display and finish tweaking xorg.conf manually. Otherwise,
livna-config-display can just take care of the 
rest."

I tried:

1) "removing the Files section and reboot to let livna-config-display
autoconfigure the xorg.conf."  Nothing was reconfigured.

2) "telling livna-config-display to stop editing configuration files"
Still had the original booting problem with the original xorg.conf file
created by nvidia-xconfig.

3) "so it's best to disable livna-config-display and finish tweaking
xorg.conf manually"  I am not clear on what should be tweaked or how?

4) "Otherwise, livna-config-display can just take care of the 
rest." To me, this is a non sequitur that in context only confuses the
issue.  Any suggestions on what it means?

If anyone can help, all the basic data is with bug #2106, or I am
willing to re-supply it.
