Accelerated X

Registered by Mark Shuttleworth on 2006-10-17

We will enable accelerated X by default, with full support for AIGLX, in Edgy+1. For those vendors which have proprietary drivers that enable acceleration, we will consider enabling those drivers by default if they can provide us with an SLA for security and related updates.

In order to do this, the NVIDIA and FGLRX packages must be fixed to coexist peacefully with each other and with stock X drivers.
