Testing Out The Nouveau Driver On Fedora 11



Hi

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=NzE3OA

"With the forthcoming release of Fedora 11, Red Hat has made the bold
(but wise) decision of replacing xf86-video-nv as the default
open-source NVIDIA driver with the Nouveau driver instead."

"Besides a clean, beautiful boot experience with Plymouth when using
kernel mode-setting, VT switching is dramatically faster and runs at the
same resolution as the running X Server. "

"Kudos to all of the Nouveau developers and to Red Hat for taking this
stand in enabling it by default. Hopefully we will see other Linux
desktop distributions make the switch from xf86-video-nv to Nouveau."
