If you do not have a xorg.conf (or have pretty messed up by xorgconfig), then you have to create/generate it, Xorg -configure is a great tool for that, but I never said that it will solve any problems.

Its just a lot simpler to debug x11 with small simple xorg.conf, then with bloated by xorgconfig one.

Yes i understood what you meant.

i just never seen it done that way till you pointed it out.
For now i have a working driver with GLX loaded,
and quite pleased.

Yes i had tried both methods The first in which you pointed out to me then the xorgconfig.

Your way i did not quite underdtand what
to do after that command.

As for now mine lies in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Thanks it always nice to learn things a differnt way

You are welcome, glad you finaly got it working, I also started to use OpenSolaris 2008.11, but all mine boxes have Intel cards, so I do not have any problems with them
