I'm hoping the Nouveau project makes things easier.. sadly their priority is Linux support, and they tend to adopt new Xorg features before the other drivers. (It's possible we'll never see a stable release, most Linux centric folk avoid them for some reason.).

Anyway, nice too see you around heatherval..

What everyone is saying is: "There are 2 proprietary nvidia drivers, the traditional one.. and another legacy package."

Both are called "nvidia" in your xorg.conf file.. "nv" is the free 2D only Xorg driver.

Take care.
