Project listing

The X11 project manages the X implementations, drivers, base-level accessories and fonts in Portage. This includes x11-base/xorg-server, media-libs/mesa, dev-libs/wayland and x11-drivers, as well as other core libraries, fonts and accessories.

Goals

The sub-project aims to support X implementations and driver or accessory addons to the core. Increasing the modularity of monolithic builds and making configuration automatic (or at least easier) are part of its current work.
