The /etc/X11/xorg.conf file looks like this; on my old machine (up to
date), the hard drive of the new machine, and the file system image of
the Live cd on the new machine.
Wouldn't the screen depth need to be changed at a lower level than this?
Or is there a way to change it in this file by replacing "Default
Screen" with something else?
