I used to use the akmod also - mostly it did work for me but there
were some graphics cards for which it did not work and I ended up not
using the akmod or kmod once the open source drivers started becoming
generally reliable (apart from 3d). However the additional use of the
mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package is giving some very good results
for 3d.
