Re: Do you want XFree86 working out of the box?
So, I did this a few days ago, and ddcprobe was not in any Debian
package. Also, it got the mouse as /dev/input rather than
/dev/input/mouse, and the resulting X configuration didn't work. It
would be really nice if it worked.

Try to install xdebconfigurator,
<URL:http://packages.debian.org/xdebconfigurator>, and see if it work
for you? To test it, install the package and run
xdebconfigurator && dexconf
This will replace your current /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, based on
the detected hardware.
It can even be used at install time, if it is installed by
debian-installer before base-config starts. Give it a try, and report
any problems to BTS.
(Try version 1.14 in Sid. Version 1.12 in sarge have a few annoying
problems now fixed in sid. :)
