    Default Whoops, X.Org Server 1.9 Gets Another RC Today

    Phoronix: Whoops, X.Org Server 1.9 Gets Another RC Today

    The second X.Org Server 1.9 release candidate was released earlier today after the first RC making it out just last week, but already the third release candidate is available to interested parties...

    "X.Org Server 1.9 that dropped mioverlay support on the basis of it being "unused", but the NVIDIA binary driver happens to use the mioverlay support (the open-source drivers no longer do), so this 2,000 lines of code was added back into the X Server for NVIDIA's benefit."

    LOL no! don't support nvidia!

    So ATi constantly needs to catch up with X.org, but nVidia can just keep their legacy code? OK - What da fsck?!

    Let those muthafsckers work around it or som'?

    it's sad to see xorg strive to maintain compatibility with nvidia blob.

    i guess that explains what driver are most xserver devs running.

    I don't see why you're complaining. Compared to NViDIA, ATI has just abandoned us. What good is releasing documents doing for us? Its great that we have acceptable opensource drivers, but not more than that. It seems they're only doing it to release pressure. Do you see anyone complaining about NViDIA drivers the way we see complaining about ATI drivers?

    BTW there are FLOSS drivers for every graphics card out there so why does X still cares about the nVidia blob? X.org already has Noveau for HW accel =S

    Leave the gaming performance to Mesa...

    Exactly. It's just a joke! Ban this crap. It seems only Linux devs have balls to play with nvidia their way.

    @MiUX

    Do you see anyone complaining about NViDIA drivers the way we see complaining about ATI drivers?
    There are many people doing this, but in the different places like nvforums and nvidia nearly doesn't care about Linux users. AMD at least released documentation and works on Open Source drivers.

    Why do they care? It's a bleeding edge RC server, do people actually expect to run blobs on that?

    Anyway, 2000 lines just for nvidia..

    Yeh, get rid of nVidia. That'll show 'em.

    Way to go, get rid of the Linux graphics solution with the best all-round functionality and performance. We don't need their kind round 'ere. Who needs working graphics anyway?
