Package: xserver-xfree86
Version: 4.2.1-0pre1v1
Severity: important

Most people that configure xserver-xfree86 simple hit enter when asked:
Use kernel framebuffer device interface?

This causes nothing but problems.  I've seen it cause X to report the
usual "no screens found" with nvidia, ati, and matrox cards.  It
probably breaks many others too.

There is no reason that I can see for that question to ever default to
yes.  All I have ever seen is it cause X to not function for countless
users.  It is probably the single biggest cause for X to not work after

Please change it to false by default.
