    Default xorg.conf looks empty ?

    I checked in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and it looks very empty.
    Where are the part where I can change the driver ?

    I am used too config by using xorgconf and using the driver xserver-xorg-driver-nv.
    but they seems too be gone in backtrack.

    With such details you certainly are not going to get much help.
    I would suggest you add a copy of your xorg.conf The type of card you have will also be good info. A link to the manufactures page on this card will also be nice.
    While waiting for any help take a look at some at the guides here on the website for more info.
    Also look into Ubuntu's forums, there will probably be info there as well.

    Everything's 'automagically' detected when you start the Xorg server. If you want/must, you can add the options/drivers/whatever

    you have to install the nvidia driver. once this is done your xorg.conf file will change.

    to create a "clean" xorg.conf file run the following command,

    sudo Xorg -configure #if you aren't root

    then copy that file to the correct location;

    cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf


    you may then edit that file to your hearts content.
