Classic X11 with Config File

Today I by accident found that classic Xorg will work on Reform with the following xorg.conf—with the caveat that there’s no GPU acceleration (instead, GLX uses llvmpipe for unknown reasons). It is snappy for many applications that don’t strictly require GPU rendering, though:

Section "Device"
  Identifier "eDP-1"
  Driver "modesetting"
  Option "kmsdev" "/dev/dri/card0"
  Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
  Option "Atomic" "On"
EndSection

You do not need to add this manually if you are running sysimage-v3. Just upgrade to reform-tools 1.9 which will install this snippet into /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-reform-etnaviv.conf.
