The good news is that this package set should work fine in either 13.1 or -current. The build box is 13.1, so I know they're compatible there; however, I'm running them on both 13.1 and -current systems, so I'm pretty sure they'll work on either :-)
Be sure to read the NOTES file before you go digging around in PACKAGES/ :-)

The nouveau driver being installed (just the fact that it's installed) shouldn't have any impact on anything. It probably won't work unless you un-blacklist the nouveau kernel module though.
I understand that you nvidia guys like your binary drivers, but some testing with nouveau would be appreciated too :-)
LOL, well so far I can't boot. I was able to get into X by renaming xorg.conf, but I was unable to reinstall my Nvidia driver or upgrade it, getting a message about a module already being loaded so I went runlevel 1 to 3 a few times, but no joy so I went ahead and rebooted.....It starts to reboot then horizontal lines then everything goes black, including the virtual terminals. The system isn't hung though because I can control+alt+del and reboot. Once I get this machine running again I'll put another testing install on my other machine and give nouveau a go.
1. Coz of my faulty Mainboard, i had to underclock my processor to its default Core Clock of 1.86GHZ instead of my Overclocked setting of 2.80 GHZ.
2. Ram also set to default at 800MHZ instead of 960MHZ
**Cant wait for my new mobo, processor, ram to arrive..**
I've been thinking about uprading my kernel in 64-current, but what stopped me was the question whether doing any customisation like that on my part would defeat the purpose of -current.
As far as I know, -current is for testing purposes to provide you guys with feedback. If I start upgrading individual packages/kernel (ie. modify the environment you provide us with) my feedback will be useless.
I understand that the new Xorg will get into -current soon and you just need some preeliminary feedback.
I'm still going to upgrade my kernel and xorg as I like the thrill of the unknown, LOL
@slackd Those glxgears frame rates look suspiciously similar to the difference I get when running glxgears with/without compositing enabled. I'm not saying that's what's happening here but it might be something to check into.
