Default Nouveau!

This has the "gallium" hardware acceleration code now and this is fantastic.My
usual tests (using 3.1 kernel version):

Chromium-BSU space invadors runs flawlessly

Peguin racer would seem to run fine but has large artifacts, at least on my
PCI express card which will run off latest and greatest nvidia on Sid. Thought
painting background graphics was the problem but disabling this did not help,
just that the artifact is blank instead of mountain.

Flightgear most likely will not run if penguin racer will not.

Might major complaint about the nvidia drivers is the thrashing of the console
by some douibling of the lines or interlacing. Nouveau does not have this
problem but switches to a much smaller font. This is just fine. However, every
font on KDE looks substantually smaller as well.

Thanks for the feedback. What's your graphics card?

This isn't really specific to nouveau, you would see the same for other
free graphics drivers. Some background is provided on upstream Xorg bug
reports [1,2].

Cheers,
Sven
