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

34 <para>
35 On machines using KMS, the modesetting driver is provided by
36 <application>xorg-server</application> and can be used instead of the
37 video driver for the specific hardware, but with reduced performance.
38 It can also be used (without hardware acceleration) in virtual machines
39 running under <application>qemu</application>.

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

53 <para>
54 In addition to the drivers listed below, there are several other
55 drivers for very old hardware that may still be relevant.
56 The latest versions of these drivers may be downloaded from
57 <ulink url='https://www.x.org/archive/individual/driver'>
58 https://www.x.org/archive/individual/driver</ulink>.
59 Instructions for building these now intermittently maintained drivers
60 may be found in a
61 prior version of BLFS: <ulink url="&BLFS76;">&BLFS76;</ulink>

94 <!-- With Kernel 5.1, VMMouse is now entirely unusable/obsolete.
95 VMWare has a replacement in the kernel that works for both Qemu and
96 VMWare, that allows the VMMouse instruction set to run through
97 EVDEV events.
98 I archived it on 2019-05-19 as a result. - renodr
