X11, Window Managers Have you ever been annoyed by Linux' lack of a coherent graphical boot process? Graphics hardware causing problems during sleep/wake cycles? Problematic virtual terminal switches? Kernel-based mode-setting, a new feature of Xorg still in heavy development aims to solve many of these problems by moving the mode-setting code from the user-space X driver into the Linux kernel. Phoronix takes a look at this new feature.

one should think so as there is no longer a need for a "sync" between the kernel and X about what state the card is in.

btw, is it just me or have there yet to be a "sync" based system that works flawlessly under load, for any kind of use?

cvs/svn/git is sync for code, and we have heard horror stories about having to clean up large syncs.

calender sync is a hit or miss experience, even when both sides are from the same company.

and the list goes on...
