How to turn off 2D/3D?
 
I have tried hard to turn off 2D/3D forcibly, to study the stability issues on Asus M3N78 PRO et al.
Disabling the Composite ("Composite" "Disable") and removing glx didn't do the job (so I guess). But even
Disable "glx"
leaves me uncertain. This is what the log file says:

X.Org X Server 1.6.0

Can someone please point out what needs to be done to the "nvidia"-driver properly without acceleration?

Also, the
(WW) "glx" will not be loaded unless you've specified it to be loaded elsewhere.
(II) "glx" will be loaded even though the default is to disable it.
sound a tad contradictory, at least to me. What does it do in the end?

Thanks,

Uwe
