Be careful editing XF86Config-4 by hand if debconf is managing it.
An apt-get upgrade and a thoughtless "[Y]es, overwrite" can end up killing
any changes you made by hand. :^)  If you can get it working with
"dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86", all the better.

Or, just don't debconf it.  (I don't recall how to do that off the top of
my head, though!)

What?  No...  I'm not speaking out of experience! *blush* Don't be silly!
