Explaining Xorg / Graphics support

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 2020-05-14.

Dear Handbook team,

I was wondering, what you would think about the idea of including a short section marked as "Optional" or something similar, which would help people kickstart Xorg and drivers on their system. While I do recognize the fact, that both graphics cards/their respective drivers and Xorg already have excellent wiki pages, I still think most people would consider it a logical next step to install a graphical environment on their system after the OS installation. A few guiding thoughts on this topic would help ease those who are used to binary distros into the quite different world that is Gentoo.

I am of course willing to try and write this, if you deem the idea good. Thank you for your time. --Nemin (talk) 12:23, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Hmm... I just noticed there is a page exactly like what I wished for here: Complete_Handbook. Perhaps then mentioning the existence of this extended handbook could serve as the previously mentioned easing in for newer users? --Nemin (talk) 09:30, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
