beschreibt das nicht so trivial:

Update your configuration

The Debian way. This method avoids many common configuration errors, because 
you don't write an XF86Config-4 file yourself. Instead you answer a series of 
questions about your mouse, keyboard, and video hardware, and then the 
configuration script writes an XF86Config-4 file for you. 
Save yourself some possible grief later, by backing up your current 

 cp -p /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.bak 
Tell Debian that XF86Config-4 has never been edited: 
 md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 >| /var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum 
 If you don't perform this step, and you have ever edited XF86Config-4, then 
dpkg-reconfigure will lead you through its whole questionnaire below, and 
then silently fail to write a new XF86Config-4. This is Debian bug #223929.

 dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 
 and answer all of the questions. 
When asked to choose an X server driver, choose "nvidia". An open-source 
alternative is the "nv" driver, which has 2D but no 3D capabilities. 
When asked to select X server modules, deselect (uncheck) GLCore and dri, and 
select (check) glx. 

 When you're done, ls -l /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to be sure your new 
XF86Config-4 file has been written.

Die manuelle Methode scheint also auf den ersten Blick einfacher zu sein.

Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4: 
In the "Module" section, be sure that you have a line 
 Load "glx" 
 and remove or comment out (prepend with a #) any lines that refer to 
the "dri" or "GLCore" modules. 
In the "Device" section for your video card, be sure you have a line 
 Driver "nvidia" 

Welche Nachteile hat die manuelle Mehtode und soll ich nun bei _mir_ beide 
Konfigurationen, also xorg.conf und XF86Config-4 anpassen um bei einer 
eventuellen automatischen Migration zu XFree bei einer Installation 
vorbereitet zu sein? Ich habe das zwar noch nie erlebt, umgekehrt (zu xorg) 
aber schon.
