[opensuse-factory] Switch from intel to modesetting with xserver 1.19 in Tumbleweed?
Dear List,
in the news yesterday is Fedora Rawhide switching to the generic modesetting driver in favor of intels DDX [1].
Modesetting is said to be more stable, while 2D performance compared to glamor is worse in few areas [2].
There was also no official intel-DDX release in 2 years, no stable one in 3 years.
Ubuntu 16.10 and Debian Unstable (July 2016) also did the switch for Intel "Gen4" hardware and newer (anything past the i965GM era) [3]

As xserver 1.19 is still baking for tumbleweed - are there plans that we also make the switch when it lands?

Cheers, Thomas
