Re: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 does not write XF86Config-4
This is because dpkg-reconfigure won't modify the XF86Config-4 file if
you've modified it by hand. It makes an MD5 sum of the file. From the
top of the XF86Config-4 file:
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xfree86 package upgrades
# *only* if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the
# xserver-xfree86 package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically
# updated again, run the following commands as root:
# cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.custom
# md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 >/var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Hope this helps!

I have tried running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 several times to
update my XF86Config-4 file. After running, I notice that the time
stamp for /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 has not changed nor have the changes I
made during the dpkg-reconfigure been saved.
Am I doing something wrong here that it is not saving the configuration?
