Any news about this?

Xorg 1.8 moved to extra on ArchLinux.

Does anyone know if the same thing will happen with Xorg 1.9? Will 1.9 be ABI compatible with 1.8?

Just out of curiosity, has there been any progress on this issue? I'd really like decent support for my FX5200 card under Fedora 13 (and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one).

I too am wanting this to work. My solution to nvidia-173 & xorg 1.8 was to drop back to fedora 12 but I have not been able to get an xorg.conf file to work with 2 monitors, let alone the 4 monitor system I want to work (two quadro FX330 dual head cards). So, I am using nouveau now and just two monitors. It is quite slow.

If I can get an xorg.conf that will work on f12, will it likely work on f13 with the new legacy driver when it's released?

Thanks,
Marc

pushing this one!
New nvidia driver (256) doesn't work properly with my 6600 card. Using it for a while reasults in high cpu usage (ksoftirqd and X take 100% together). Had this issue earlier but didn't care as older versions works fine.
Is this the price we pay for closed source drivers?

I have Geforce FX 5200. On 10.04 graphics driver was working well but after upgrading to Maverick 10.10, ubuntu is not working on any nvidia drivers. Is there a any driver development for xorg 1.9 support?

The word on the street is that devs are working on fixing the issues with gnome-shell ... I guess the next release will be delayed 'till then , and I think it will include xorg1.10 support
