Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-10-03 18:03:48 UTC
1) What is says there does not change the driver used, or any other relevant
details for X configuration.
2) This code is changed in rawhide such that mapping is done directly to the X
driver used, so it won't state something like this any more in any case.
