Doing away with xorg.conf for r128 x.org DDX device driver
Submitted by Kevin Brace

I have discussed this in Bug #91113, but I have experimented with how little of xorg.conf I can have so that I can boot X server. I will attach the xorg.conf I used shortly, but I have cut down to very few lines of code. Since I have cut down to such few lines of code, is there a way to make the DDX device driver loading automatic so that the use of xorg.conf itself can be discontinued for r128? Of course, if the user wants to use it for some reason (i.e., change color depth to 16-bit rather than 24-bit), it should still be available, but for a default situation where it does not exist, the device driver should load properly without xorg.conf. Another reason for my request for the discontinuation of the use of xorg.conf is that if that file is missing, X server does not start at all. This is very "user hostile" in my opinion. Furthermore, OpenChrome device driver (there are occasionally some code being added to the device driver) for VIA Technologies integrated graphics hardware does not require the use of xorg.conf at all.
