I am trying to generate an
xorg.conf file for my current configuration. I am using
X -config xorg.conf, but it doesn't produce a file.
Here is the output:
# X -config xorg.conf.new X.Org X Server 1.17.2 Release Date: 2015-06-16 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: 2.6.32-573.18.1.el6.x86_64 Current Operating System: Linux mapcrunch.localdomain 3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jul 4 15:04:05 UTC 2017 x86_64 Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/vmlinuz-3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/cl-root ro crashkernel=auto rd.lvm.lv=cl/root rd.lvm.lv=cl/swap rhgb quiet LANG=en_US.UTF-8 Build Date: 06 November 2016 12:43:39AM Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.17.2-22.el7 Current version of pixman: 0.34.0 Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org to make sure that you have the latest version.

It then hangs and never returns to prompt.

I did end up realizing that I was using the wrong command then ran into a bound kernel driver error. I then had to blacklist the driver for some reason in order to get the xorg.conf file.
