Intel, Nvidia Kernel Mode-Setting In Fedora 11



Hi,

Essentially this means you will see Plymouth graphical bootup look better in a lot more systems and easily enabled in Nvidia systems as well. KMS brings in a number of other benefits as well.

"Just three days ago we shared that Nouveau will become the default NVIDIA driver in Fedora 11 to replace the obfuscated xf86-video-nv mess. Now proposed for Fedora 11 is to also integrate the Nouveau kernel mode-setting driver."

"Enabled by default on Fedora 11 will be Intel kernel mode-setting (along with the ATI kernel mode-setting that can already be found in Fedora 10). More on this is also available from the Fedora Wiki. ATI kernel mode-setting has been enabled since Fedora 10, but in Leonidas the support will be extended to support KMS on ATI R100/200 hardware. "
