28 The <application>Xorg Drivers</application> page contains the
29 instructions for building Xorg drivers that are necessary in order
30 for Xorg Server to take the advantage of the hardware that it is
31 running on. At least one input and one video driver is required
32 for Xorg Server to start.

37 If you are unsure which video hardware you have, you can use
38 <command>lspci</command> from <xref linkend="pciutils"/>
39 to find out which video hardware you have and then look at
40 the descriptions of the packages in order to find out
41 which driver you need.

47 In addition to the drivers listed below, there are several other
48 drivers for very old hardware that may still be relevant.
49 Instructions for building these now unmaintained drivers may be found in a
50 prior version of BLFS: <ulink url="&BLFS76;">&BLFS76;</ulink>
