Xorg Community,
I am trying to learn more about X and understand what is necessary from
a driver prespective to create an X-based video card.  In particular I
am trying to understand when a program uses XOpenDisplay() how you
construct your driver so that it can handle that call to it.  Does
anyone have experience at the driver level that could explain the
arhitecture of such a driver?
