Unhappy Screen goes black after generating xorf.conf in Fedora 10

Hi,

I am using 8400GS graphics card. I installed fedora10 and it worked well.

the problem is now I have to install a xenarc touch kit which requires a xorg,conf file to write it's configuration.

I created one with the commnad X -configure but when I did startx screen went black and i was not able to do anything.

Any help

How do you think should anyone help you, if you don't give any details at all? No one knows your actuall xorg.conf, no one has seen your error-log, so how can anyone help you? At least you should attach here your xorg.conf and the xorg error-log.

You don't seem to be using nvidia driver - looks like it's nouveau instead, and that's what I think causes your problem.

Ya by default it took nouveau driver which is not installed in Fedora 10. In greater versions of Fedora it is installed.

I changed the driver to nv and now it's working fine
