ThinkPad T500: system or livna-config-display for xorg.conf?


I have a new ThinkPad T500 with (as per the lspci output):

- VGA Compatible Controller: Intel Corporation Cantiga Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
- VGA Compatible Controller: ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3650

During original installation, X wasn't properly configured, I'm not getting X at all, so I have to go manually about it.

In this
HowTo: Installing Fedora 10 on machine with old Intel video chipset

it's recommended to use
in order to generate xorg.conf

In other posts, I found
being mentioned for the same purpose.

Any difference between them?

BTW, my xorg.conf, generated with system-config-display, looks awfully inadequate:
- it doesn't show the mouse section
- it doesn't show the monitor section
- it doesn't show anything about the ATI Radeon

BTW, I've just tried to find livna-config-display with:

yum -y install livna-config-display

It isn't found by yum, while yesterday
was found.

OK, after doing the changes indicated in:

ThinkPad T500: FC 10, X Windows on both Intel and Radeon

the xorg.conf generated again by
was appropriate for ATI Radeon 3650.
