Nouveau To Enter The Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Kernel

“The Nouveau project has been around for years now and continues
to make progress but there has yet to be a stable release of any
component — even just a DDX driver — although their current
feature matrix is reflecting that 2D and X-Video support is
complete for all NVIDIA graphics hardware generations, many
output-related features (RandR 1.2, KMS, NouveauFB) are done, and
the 3D work using Gallium3D is even progressing. The only Linux
distribution to currently deploy the Nouveau driver stack by
default is Fedora, considering the driver isn’t even in the
kernel’s staging tree. This though may soon change.”
