Description of problem:
If XF86Config is missing from /etc/X11 redhat-config-xfree86 will not generate a
new config file, and same thing happens if the XF86Config is ruined. Running
"redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig does not generate a new config file. There is
no other tool to generate a new XF86Config file since xf86config was removed
from XFree86-
