nvidia driver and xorg.conf

Hi, i would like to remove xorg.conf because now it's not necessary anymore but i have an Nvidia 6200 and installed nvidia, nvidia-utils driver. If i remove xorg.conf when i try to log into X it tells me that the system can't load nv module or vesa module, so the olny way to log into X without xorg.conf is to use vesa driver. How can i resolve this issue and use nvidia driver? Thanks

Re: nvidia driver and xorg.conf

If you want to use the nvidia proprietary driver, you need a minimal xorg.conf file :

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
EndSection

You can also add options for the driver there.

Re: nvidia driver and xorg.conf

You have the conclusion.  The file 'xorg.conf' IS necessary.
