Re: Recreate Xorg.conf
Linux does not stagnate like other OS's.

The magic missing link you are looking for is the command line tool `xrandr`
As its name suggests, it was initially a frontend for the "X Resize and Rotate"
extensions but it has grown to be much more.
It can even add VGA modelines on-the-fly that were not auto-detected by X.
That having been said, if you really do have a graphic card and monitor combo
that do not detect the optimal modes automatically, it is understandable that
you will not want to be re-running `xrandr` after ever reboot to fix it.
So, as you make a xorg.conf for a more permanent solution, just remember
to keep it as sparse as possible. It will still auto-config the rest.
In other words, let the auto-config do 99% of the work.
