Documentation for xorg in etch?

I've recently upgraded from sarge to etch. Everything worked more or less painlessly. However I would like to tweek my xorg configuration a bit [1].

Where can I find the documentation on how to do it?


doesn't contain sufficient information.

Is /etc/X11/xorg.conf supposed to be more or less identical to XF86Config-4?
(I guess at least the comments should be changed).

I think it would be nice to have more documentation in place before etch hits stable.

[1]: Especially:
Display resolution, lcd-display


Excerpt of my xorg.conf after dist-upgrade:
# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
# 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
