Minimalistic X Server - NetBSD port

by Jeremy Morse for The NetBSD Project

Currently XOrg supports a minimalistic implementation of an X Server - called "KDrive" internally. This provides a set of basic features, and is configured at compile time, resulting in a single binary that doesn't require any config or driver files. This could be highly useful in an embedded environment where an X server is wanted, but space requirements prohibit using a fully featured X server. Currently kdrive only supports Linux, this project is to create a NetBSD port.
