Dear all,

I just finished building Xorg. I have xome problems getting the config right. When I start X, I get the following output:

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support

         at http://wiki.x.org

 for help.

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.

Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.

xinit: giving up

xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused


Why is "Section" not a valid keyword in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf?

When I remove al the config-files from /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, Xorg will start, but mouse and keyboard do not work. Any suggestions?
