Missing xorg.conf file on Fedora 14?

Fedora 14 doesn't create /etc/X11/xorg.conf by default.For making manual changes to X configuration for any reason,one need to create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. You can follow these steps to change settings for Xorg.

Xorg -configure

Create a basic xorg.conf through these command:

#Xorg -configure

The above command will create the file /root/xorg.conf.new. You need to copy this file to xorg.conf through this step:

#cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf

[Note that this will only work if no X server is currently running]
If in case the above stuff din't work, try tweaking through:

#system-config-display --noui

The above command creates a clean /etc/X11/xorg.conf file using the automatically detected driver for your video card.

To specify a particular driver for your card you can simply create a standard /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and then edit it by hand, but you can also do this directly with system-config-display.

For example, to specify the nv driver, you could do:

system-config-display --noui --set-driver=nv
When using the --set parameters, --noui is implied, so you do not really need to include it. For more information on ways you can use system-config-display, run system-config-display --help.

Hope it helps !!!
