    Phoronix: Ubuntu Defaults To Intel Kernel Mode-Setting

    Canonical's X.Org guy, Bryce Harrington, has announced the switch to using Intel kernel mode-setting by default beginning with the new Linux 2.6.30 kernel update that was just committed to the Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala" repository. Cheers! For those unfamiliar with what Intel kernel mode-setting means or would like more information, check out the mailing list announcement...

    No. To be fair it fails with busybox. If I just exit that it continues to boot. Others have reported that that doesn't happen if you disable modesetting.

    It makes my system unbootable with the latest kernel update. So beware to everyone not having a intel gfx card. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon.

    But i still have to test what happens when the xserver/driver is too old for kms.

    So all people enjoying decent graphcis drivers (movies/compiz/gaming) are screwed by default in the next version?
