    If you don t have an existing /etc/X11/XF86Config* file it does probe the

    The tool is still unable to do most choice though works is on the way :
    - lots of fix are expected for 4.3.0-dfsg.1.9
    - ubuntu (fully automated for one card install ) does it pretty well
    through hacks sometimes. We can expect some improvments will be included
     in debian.

    At first you could try renaming your old X config, taking care that most
     package suggested by xserver-xfree86 are installed:
    - mdetect for mouse
    - read-edid for monitor frequency autodetection
    - discover for video card detection

    It did autodetected my stuff after i did an X purge (i was going from
     unoffical packages back to the debian ones). Though i expect moving
     the config will be enough.
