They are still having to reinstall the video driver due to the xserver being replaced, aren't they?
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

I usually wait a day or two before installing any updates. If there's a problem, you'll most likely hear about it here. If there are no problems reported, I take 'em all.

I think that may have saved me some grief with the xorg updates.

Yes, the xorg updates have been the only problem (using the CR), and that was kinda expected.

Only if you spit in RFS's eye and use a proprietary video driver ;)

Like lucky9 noted, the rebuild is expected, just like it would need to be done for a newer kernel.
The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.
