Default nvidia.ko driver with XFree86 (not X.org)

Hi there,

I was just wondering if using the Nvidia Linux driver (nvidia.ko) is supported at all with XFree86 rather than X.org?

I have it working apparently fine after patching XFree86 to resolve a couple of undefined external symbols which nvidia_drv was complaining about - without them XFree86 would crash. Maybe I shouldn't have done this.

I'm using an ASUS 9600GT card and its VGA, DVI and HDMI interfaces all seem to work just fine.

Thanks, Steve
