xf86-video-intel-2.6.3 and xorg-server-1.6.1 … a big fail
26 May 2009

xf86-video-intel-2.6.3 — why do you cause so many problems? Ever since the transition from slow console switching (3 – 5 secs) to fast kernel mode switching (<< 1 sec) you insist on crashing when I kill X.org. Perhaps it's just me — perhaps I'm one of the unfortunate few that cannot have a perfect working system. NO, I do not want to compile X.org without KMS nor do I want to switch to the legacy intel video driver. *sigh*

I will find a fix but I'm afraid that the solution will be a X.org recompile.

Before you ask, xf86-video-intel-2.7.1 doesn't work at all, so I'll need to wait for a more stable release.
