When creating a xorg.conf file with nvidia-xconfig, it adds the deprecated “type1” and “freetype” options to the modules section. These two modules are no longer used on modern Linux systems. It also adds “dbe”, “glx”, and “extmod” to the modules section as well. Although this is ok, Xorg already loads these modules by default, so it’s unnecessary for nvidia-xconfig to alter the modules section to begin with.
But most importantly, nvidia-xconfig shouldn’t add “type1” and “freetype” to the modules section. They are deprecated, and a security risk if enabled. When removed, it should be noted in the release notes to remove those setting from the xorg.conf file of present.
