While the primary incentive for the backport effort has been server
enablement, the desktop flavours will work but your mileage may vary.
I've successfully used -generic- on both nVidia and Intel graphics GPUs
in 2D mode. That being said, any bug reports against the desktop
flavours will be marked 'Wont Fix'. There is simply too much skew
between Maverick DRM and Lucid X server drivers.
Many thanks to those of you who have been following development of the
backports via the kernel-ppa. Those packages have now been deleted.
Depending on the meta package name you chose during development, you may
have to choose a new meta package from the list above as I've simplified
the meta and kernel binary package relationships.
