xserver-xorg no longer handles display setup. Where it went off to I have no 
idea and really wish somebody would tell me. Go look at your xorg.conf, it's 
full of "configured this" and "configured that." For now, the best advice I 
got when I was having display issues in alpha5 was to put the display section 
back into xorg.conf manually (I was lucky and had an old copy of my xorg 
lying around, worked fine). But really, where did the functionality that 
xserver-xorg used to handle _go_?

sorry for threadjacking-
