All done, but the logverbose flag doesn't changes the output in the
Xorg.0.log. My video driver now is the one for vmware. I'd like to write the
xorg.conf by myself. Do you know if is there a way to obtain the basic
structure of this file from my host linux which is an Ubuntu 9.10? Because
is not easy to find some parameters like the screen configuration.
