Re: Creating X config

it does detect the monitor), is there a way for me to dump the (guessed)
configuration it uses and actually create a physical xorg.conf file?

X -configure

If this doesn't create a file which works for you, you can still install system-config-display with yum, run that, and use the tool which has been standard for years (or at least the latest incarnation of it).

The xorg.conf file is needed in so many cases, I have no idea why creation wasn't part of the install. Or maybe there's a secret other file to hold all the options most people want to provide for a laptop, and I just haven't found the information on it.
