27 <para>
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 advantage of the hardware that it is
31 running on. At least one input and one video driver are required
32 for Xorg Server to start.
33 </para>
34
35 <para>
36 On machines using KMS, the modesetting driver is provided by
37 <application>xorg-server</application> and can be used instead of the
38 video driver for the specific hardware, but with reduced performance.
39 It can also be used (without hardware acceleration) in virtual machines
40 running under <application>qemu</application>.
41 </para>

43 <note>
44 <para>
45 If you are unsure which video hardware you have, you can use
46 <command>lspci</command> from <xref linkend="pciutils"/>
47 to find out which video hardware you have and then look at
48 the descriptions of the packages in order to find out
49 which driver you need.

53 <note>
54 <para>
55 In addition to the drivers listed below, there are several other
56 drivers for very old hardware that may still be relevant.
57 Instructions for building these now unmaintained drivers may be found in a
58 prior version of BLFS: <ulink url="&BLFS76;">&BLFS76;</ulink>
