Comment: No more rogue mode-setting apps (Score 1) 81

by pdr77 (#23134226) Attached to: Linux Gets Kernel-Based Modesetting
Ever tried out a new game and it borked up so bad you had to ssh in from somewhere else and do a reboot? Well, in my opinion, the best part about this feature is that from now on, you should be able to just bring up a VT with Ctrl-Alt-Fx and just kill the rogue process! Of course putting more into the kernel, like complex rendering operations, would be a mistake, but setting the video mode should have been in there years ago. Now all we need is a better system for getting notifications of the vertical retrace!
