Swapped monitors because the one I was using was suffering from flicker
due to cold solder joint.
The old one was a CTX 500VL and this one is a CTX 1565GM which does not
have as broad a frequency band.
At first it worked. Then to accommodate the frequencies I ran
xorgconfig. THEN I blew away the old one by accident. Now when I try
to run a window manager (e.g. XFCE) I get "no screens found" fatal
server error.
I compared the xorg.conf which I just built with an XF86Config file on
ver 9. They are nearly identical except for an added line:
load "glx" which means nothing to me. Here is the xorg.conf:

Can anyone clue me in ??. I tried using "vesa" for the driver as
suggested elsewhere to no avail.
