nouveau uses kms but nvidia binary never did. you can use a vesa framebuffer if you like for your consoles. kms looks fine, but as you usually mainly use x i see no huge impact if the driver has kms or not. Of couse it is true that you could run X without suid with kms if thats a major thing you need - testing nouveau is really interesting but may not be suiteable for every need.
The nvidia driver uses "KMS".
There's a bit more discussion of the issue in the thread before that post. About everything after, however, degenerated into a distro fight (for whatever reason).
If there were no system hangs and OpenGL memory leaks, then why did nVidia fix it with a release? Are you saying it did not crash because you didn't use certain features? (for a long time)
Or are you saying you have no knowledge about the issue? Or are you saying nVidia is lying?
These drivers don't fix the resize bugs in konsole and a few apps I noticed.
Last time I checked, there was some evidence that the slow OpenGL texture transfer were a deliberate limitation designed to help sell the more expensive Quadro cards... ah yeah, here it is, and here too.Quote:
