By the way, have you noticed that nv (xserver-xorg-video-nv)
has been dropped from Wheezy (testing) now? I'm still running it,
but I had to download the source code and compile my own version
from source. That still works. But I'm living on borrowed time.
I noticed build warnings that the driver is referring to deprecated
fields. It's only a matter of time before I start to get FTBFS
errors. And then, if the lack of support for interlaced modes
has not been addressed in nouveau, I will have to get rid of my
monitor. (My monitor requires an interlaced mode. That's why
I still use nv.)
