Test new Xorg config

First, create an Xorg config file:
# Xorg -configure
This will generate a file named /root/ which attempts to load the proper drivers for the detected hardware. Next, test that the automatically generated configuration file works with the graphics hardware by typing:
# Xorg -config -retro
If the test is successful, copy the configuration file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
# cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf
