Re: X can't find usable screens

Josiah's config file worked for me. I compared it with what I'd been
doing, and the key was in fact to turn off fbdev, as he suggested. I
don't know why things got worse when I'd tried turning it off before.
My mistake, I guess - but then we all knew that anyways, right?
Big thanks to Josiah for the help. And also to Peter for his reply.
