Well of course I'm not playing my guitar, instead I'm spending hours
again googling the web. I found this one:
"Yes.. the nvidia and ati drivers have been removed on purpose from rt
and xen packages - it says so in the changelog under the 2.6.22-9
linux-restricted-modules-2.6.22 (126.96.36.199-9.6) gutsy; urgency=low
* Oh well, disable xen/rt for fglrx and nvidia.
It doesn't state why they were removed neither if they will be back."
Does anybody know something about this? Is there any way I can get them
back in? Meanwhile, I'll return to google...
