Default Re: X server crash on manipulation of certain strings

I'm rather new with Linux. Does that mean that there should be some mention of renderaccel in xorg.conf maybe? Or how can I make sure? I'd rather not take any chances if I can avoid it...

I'm using Ubuntu, which came with the open source(?) driver "nv" that doesn't provide some 3d acceleration, for which i downloaded and installed the binary blob "nvidia" driver. Is that the renderaccel thing or is it yet something else?

Doesn't NVIDIA have a web page about this anywhere? I've seen a fair share of FUD about this issue online but that doesn't really make me too happy. One of the reasons I'm using Linux is to be safe and in command of my own computer, however, now at the moment I'm feeling pretty let down and in the dark.
