Re: port-amd64/45234: Xorg -configure fails on amd64 (-current as 8.8.2001, 5.99.55)

It was a bug in the new X server, I checked in a fix. It should work now.

No, that is not the case, see the error message.  There is a problem
loading the vmwlegacy module.

Xorg -configure is basically unsupported upstreams and has a lot of
issues with some modules.

The approach it uses (loading all modules at once to see which one
matches the current card) is flawed. It was useful while ISA boards
were supported, but since this support has been removed, it should be
fixed to just do what is done when running without a config file and
output the running config.

My graphics cards is supported, starting X works fine wihtout a config
file, but that gives the wrong keyboard encoding.  So I need to create a
config file to change the XkbLayout.

You can create an xorg.conf with your favourite text editor with just
an InputDevice section for your keyboard

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "XkbLayout" "sg"

(And someone could have a look at was done in OpenBSD in
xserver/config/wscons.c to get the layout from wscons automatically)
I plan to submit it upstreams, but it won't make it into xserver
