 NAME
      xf86config_convert - convert XF86Config file format

 SYNOPSIS
      xf86config_convert [ input file ]

 DESCRIPTION:
      Convert the format of the XF86Config file specified to the format that
      supports device files instead of driver names and bus ID's. If no file
      is specified the the input file will be set to /etc/X11/XF86Config.

      The old format of the /etc/X11/XF86Config allowed specification of
      devices that were not actually on the system.  The new format works in
      conjunction with the Graphics VIDeo driver to ensure that the
      specifications make sense.

      This conversion tool will replace the "Driver" and "BusID" tokens with
      a single "Devicefile" token that has been verified with GVID. Also,
      now that the X server supports extension brokering there is no longer
      a need to specify "Load" for any extensions in the "Module" section of
      the config file.
