Thanks Remi. I'll do that. I didn't realize gentoo-wiki wasn't a
Gentoo project. (I understand that this list isn't!)
The only reason I'm using xorg.conf is to set up dual monitor the way
I want. I suppose I might be able to do that with something like
xrandr scripts or something? I'll check into it. Now that the drivers
all seem to work OK maybe I should try nothing just to see what
I guess the question I'm left with is knowing how to check if 2D is
working or working well. I'll go look for other resources on that one.
