Enlight of all of the xorg xorg.conf changes. Or the lack of needing a
xorg.conf file is there another config file planned for the latest nouveau

and speed up the display so that programs like Flightgear can work.
You don't need anything special. The nVidia installer is "smart"
enough to create the basic xorg.conf needed (via nvidia-xconfig) so
the nVidia driver is used. Why would you need any other conf file at
this point? Or have I missed something?

Yes NV's file is start if you have the correct naming for the kernel.
And at the end of it's .run script it tries to put "Driver nvidia" in the xorg.conf file. If it is not there it fails to add it.

If xorg is so smart then modprobe is not smart enough to figure out that need to be installed first. /usr/sbin/hwinfo -gfxcard results
