ops. Since hotplug deals with PCI cards, I assumed that it would know of
video cards as well; if this is not the case, then maybe the best way
out would be that: mantainers of discover split discover in two,
discover-X11 and discover (all the rest), whereas discover-X11 will be
used by xserver-xfree86, but it will not touch anything else; and
everybody will be happy ever after.
I agree that hotplug and discover must be able to co-exist on a
system. And I believe they mostly do, as I have both installed. :)
Unless someone may go and rewrite xserver-xfree86 to suggest
'hotplug | discover', and use any of the two. (hotplug has a much
wider list of rdependencies than discover, so it may be installed
nonetheless). (Ops I am becoming religious myself!)
How do I use hotplug to get the correct XFree86 driver for a given
video card? I thought hotplug only did kernel modules.
