    Switching 9.1 to Xorg


    I've noticed that there is a version of Xorg on SuSE's ftp server. Has anyone converted their SuSE 9.1 to Xorg? Is it easy to make the switch? will it still be compatible with the Nvidia drivers and allow 3d acceleration? Will KDE 3.3, Gnome, Xfce4 etc. still work?

    Considering that at this particular point, Xorg and XFree86 are essentially identical in their codebase, anything that works now on XFree86 should work on Xorg. There's a nice article in the Coffee Lounge about XFree and Xorg.
