when the problem is precisely when there is no xorg.conf file, this is
just silly

No, having an xorg.conf file is never a requirement.

If the new X server is not able to display on graphics card & monitor
combination, then you file a bug against them.

Very likely many problems are caused by stale xorg.conf files, left
over from old releases or created by users who don't follow the advice
in the release notes, so actually Stefan's joke alias for sax2 has a
point.

I had such an issue when I changed from an old and ailing Sun 22"
monitor to a 22" flat wide screen, removing xorg.conf sorted it. I for
one am glad to see such new stuff taking away some of the old irksome
issues - if anyone else remembers back in the day when you needed a
ruler, the manual and a calculator to get XFree86.conf right and also to
not mention Linux if your monitor genuinely failed and you had to ask
your supplier to replace it.

Sid.
