Re: rt kernel and nouveau
Wow, thanks a lot guys!
right now, I have two xorg.conf files, backed up like
the 'nv' one is my old configuration and I use it every time I'm working/playing/watching a film...
in the other one I removed all references to a second monitor and replaced
driver "nvidia" with
left everything else untouched.
result is: now I just have to switch one file and select the proper kernel on grub
another quick Q, Is it safe to copy/paste the complete kernel entries on grub to alter the order they appear?
alternatively, how do you go about changing the default selection on grub2?
I used to know that, but those where grub(1) times :)

nvidia-kernel-common package is installed. I would prefer not to
blacklist anything and boot the non-rt kernel with the 'nomodeset'
Not true, nvidia is never autoloaded, so you need at least a 4-line

xorg.conf. And it is also necessary to switch the providers of
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so, otherwise OpenGL programs
will not run.
All doable with a custom initscript, but quite some hassle.
I ended up locally diverting /usr/sbin/update-grub (replacing it with a

symlink to /bin/true) and managing /boot/grub/grub.cfg by hand.
