xorg.conf has wrong name fo rmy card
The xorg.conf file of FC5 on my computer has an "odd" name or description for my Leadtek 6200-TC card. It shows "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)". At one time I did have a GeForce 4 card in the system. I will shortly install a 7300 fanless Gigabyte card in the unit.

Is the "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)" reference acceptable for my current card? If not, what should it say? Is there a way to get the system to alter this, or to check the video card so that it can alter the entry? Or, I could just type in the correct statement if the current one should be altered.

Re: xorg.conf has wrong name fo rmy card
The "identifier" within the section "Device" is completely arbitrary. You can make it whatever you want, as long as you also change the "Device" name in the screen section. For example


Section "Device"
    Identifier  "eVGA 7600GT"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option "RenderAccel" "true"
    Option "CursorShadow" "true"
    Option "Coolbits" "1"
Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "eVGA 7600GT"
    Monitor    "Dell P991"
    DefaultDepth 24

I could change "eVGA 7600GT" to "Super Whizbang Geforce 9000", as long as I did it in both sections.

Thank you for your time,
Frank Russo
