Comment 10 for bug 333040

I ran the live version of Alpha 6 and it ran on this same machine
without an issue. Isn't there some way, and I'm sure this has been
discussed, that upon upgrading, that the proprietary drivers are
checked for compatibilty, and if they fail, an error comes up saying
that the driver is being turned off? I don't know how hard it would
be, but based on all these errors with the new Xorg, I would think
this would be something common sense to add.
