Let's start the Fire Marshall debate!

I forgot to mention one thing about reinstalling my laptop...

When I reinstalled, I selected to use XFree86 3.something instead of 4.0.3. This resulted in much better X performance -- the Konsole scrolling issue that I was complaining about in a prior journal entry was nonexistant. Indeed, it was back up to performance levels that I was used to.

However, I'm pretty sure that I was previously running XFree86 4.something before I installed 'drake 8.0 (i.e., under 'drake 7.2), and I didn't have these issues.

Oh well. What the heck do I know about the difference, anyway? Nothing. It works great, and is back being nice and fast, so that's all that I care about.
