Default Re: X11R7.1 about to enter FC5-updates. Driver support?

pdesalvia,

Your HOWTO solves a different problem (modular X.org sitting in /usr instead of monolitic X.org sitting in /usr/X11R6). The nVidia driver is incompatible with X.org R7.1 that is about to be released, as an update, to Fedora Core 5 (and others). While there's a work-around to make things (semi) work (--ignore-abi), it's less then a satisfying solution.

Cheers,
