Re: forced modification of XF86Config-4 - Bug or Feature?

> severity serious
i agree
this IS a serious bug.
the xf86 config file must not be overwritten (okay, there IS a backup
made, but novice users will go crazy when their xserver no longer
starts; with certain chipsets this might even lead to lockups, i fear!)
without querying the user FIRST.
Or it could just check if there are debconf marks in the config file.
if there are not, it should NOT be overwritten; if there are, only the
parts within the marks may be overwritten.

btw: it would be great if the config tool could detect the commercial nvidia
driver (at least if installed via nvidia-kernel-src/nvidia-glx-src!) and
provide this as additional choice.
