Problem loading nvidia module due to missing xorg.conf
 
I have a configuration, where I need to have the xorg.conf file under /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.$(hostname).
This is perfectly ok with other modules, but not with the nvidia module.
Because there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf the module does not load.
Linking manually the the /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.$(hostname) to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, loading the module and removing /etc/X11/xorg.conf works.
I've been playing around with the install command but with no luck.
Any idea how to load the module without a /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

Thank you

Does no one from nvidia know how to circumvent this?
It's clearly a bug and a feedback that the problem will be addressed will be apreciated.

Thank you

This is an X server issue specific to your environment. The nvidia driver has no awareness of the location (or even existence) of the X configuration. That is handled entirely by the X server itself.

This can't be. If I try modprobe nvidia I get the error. I can do this way before the X-Server is started. If I supply a xorg.conf, then load the module, and then remove it again, the X-server starts just fine, because the xserver finds the module and a valid xorg.conf.
You can reproduce it easily with any version. Move the xorg.conf to /usr/lib/X11.
with vesa and nv modules the x-server starts, with nvidia not.
Now load the module with xorg in usual place. remove it afterwards, and then start the xserver. It starts.
So how do I start the module without a xorg.conf in /etc/X11. Isn't there a switch to force the module to load?

Any help would be appreciated
