12<para>XFree86 is a freely redistributable open-source implementation of the
13X Window System. XFree86 provides a client/server interface between display
14hardware (the mouse, keyboard, and video displays) and the desktop environment
15while also providing both the windowing infrastructure and a standardized
16application interface (API).</para>

27<para>The first three packages are the XFree86 programs, the fourth and fifth are fonts,
28the sixth is normal documantation, and the seventh is hardcopy documentation.
29There are also two packages <filename>doctools-1.3.1.tgz</filename>, which
30contain programs to regenerate hardcopy documentation, and
31<filename>utils-1.1.0.tgz</filename>, which contain <filename>gnutar</filename>
32and <filename>zlib</filename> which are already installed on an LFS system.

35<para>To check your downloads for integrity, download the <filename>SUMS.md5sum</filename>
36file. Then:
37<screen>md5sum X430src* &gt; md5sums &amp;&amp;
38diff md5sums SUMS.md5sum</screen>
39The only differences you should see are for <filename>README</filename>,
40<filename>doctools-1.3.1.tgz</filename>, and utils-1.1.0.tgz files if you did
41not downlaod them.
