Hi Armin,

# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep xorg
(**) Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
(**) <default keyboard>: XkbRules: "xorg"

# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep conf
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,

        Using the default keyboard configuration.

Would it be "getconfig"?  Why I'm not allowed to copy
/root/ /etc/X11/xorg and run xorg.conf there?

Unfortunataely xorg.0.log is a big file.  I have no idea where to look
at the error message on running xorg.conf.  Any suggestion?  TIA
