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>

21<para>The following packages are included in the XFree86 package, however they
22are updated more often than the XFree86 package and are highly recommended:

40<para>You should also download the patch file:

42
43<para>The first three packages are the XFree86 programs, the fourth and fifth are fonts,
44the sixth is normal documentation, and the seventh is hardcopy documentation.
45There are also two packages <filename>doctools-1.3.1.tgz</filename>, which
46contain programs to regenerate hardcopy documentation, and
47<filename>utils-1.1.0.tgz</filename>, which contain <filename>gnutar</filename>
48and <filename>zlib</filename> which are already installed on an LFS system.

51<para>To check your downloads for integrity, download the <filename>SUMS.md5sum</filename>
52file. Then:
53<screen>md5sum X430src* &gt; md5sums &amp;&amp;
54diff md5sums SUMS.md5sum</screen>
55The only differences you should see are for <filename>README</filename>,
56<filename>doctools-1.3.1.tgz</filename>, and
57<filename>utils-1.1.0.tgz</filename> files if you did
58not download them.

61<para>The fixes subdirectory also has a SUMS.md5sum and this can be checked against
62the patch file:

65<para>After unpacking the <filename>X430src-?.tgz</filename> files, change to the
66<filename>xc</filename> directory and run:
