Re: kernel based modesetting
I've only had problems with ATI cards. I've encountered many many instabillities with my intel chip and kms. I've had a perfectly stable system with the nvidia driver for some years now. Could be faster in some things, but it's getting better and better.Phoronix published an interview some days ago with the lead linux developer of nvidia and he shared interesting details, so read it if you want to know more,
If I want kms I use nouveau on my G84 and it works like a charm without glitches and very high performance. In the long term it will completely replace the nvidia driver here, but this is still a long road to go since I need 3D from time to time.
So please stop offtopic stuff, kms for nvidia might come but it's prettly low prioritiy.
