Hi all,

i am working on an embedded Linux system. depended on the installed 
graphic card i use an different xorg.conf with xorg-server-1.7.6. for 
example i start xorg with Xorg -c /etc/xorg/xorg-nvidia.conf if an 
nvidia card are detected (i do this with lspci). for all other cards i 
start xorg with Xorg -c /etc/xorg/xorg.conf.

In the future i am want using uxlaunch from moblin/meego for starting 
xorg and the desktop. uxlaunch dont know the "-c" option for passing an 
configfile to the xorg server.

is it possible to use /etc/xorg/conf.d for the different options i need 
if i using an nvidia card (without using this options if i start with a 
different graphic card)? can i use udev for detecting the graphic card 
and use configfiles in the same way we can does this with input drivers?

thanks for helping
