here are some typical autogenerated entries.
but wacom-tablets (like lobster uses) seem to need some recompiled files.

So this here is no solution for you,just intended to give you an idea how such entries look like.

Code:

xorg.conf is used by the X.org xserver.
It is part of Puppy 1.0.7 (final version available at new years day, beta version see newspage).

the conf is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

For older puppys:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=14009#14009
But I would suggest using Puppy 107, as it has some great wizards that make setting up X.org much easier than with the Dotpup.

Use a copy of your existing pup001 to test it.

Configuration-files basically should not be touched.
But several dotpups might need to be re-installed.

Puppy moves several files to /root/tmp/USERREMOVED.
So copy them back to the correct location after the upgrade, or re-install the broken Dotpups.

I am not shure if that is a bug in the Dotpups created with my wizard, or in Puppy.
If I remember well, that did not happen when upgrading from puppy 105 to 106, but I am not shure about that.
