OK! That's good news.
Also I know there was a bug, making Xephyr crash randomly. Is this bug also
fixed, as far as you know. I'm just asking, otherwise I will search through
I'm not very familiar with the architecture of X, so can you please explain a
little? DRI driver, ok I know X uses that, but I have a nvidia card.
In my configuration there is one main Xorg server, which will do the talking
to the hardware, so I guess that X will need the dri driver, and not Xephyr.
Thanks for your reaction.
