Since most of the wiki is aimed at new users anyway: why differentiate between the Xorg client and server? manolo 19:23, 9 November 2009 (EST)

Just got to say thanks for you edits Manolo, you're doing a great job on the wiki. As for Xorg naming, their is no client only a server (Wikepedia). However, the nomenclature of it is a bit awkward. Xorg server got its' name from when the popular design philosophy was that computer hubs would essential be dum-terminals (i.e. not have an graphic card) and one machine would handle the graphic load. It's sort of an outdated (and awkward) term now but is still used and the proper and common wording.

Thanks for the clarification/compliments. So if I understand correctly, "Xorg" is referring to "Xorg server"? manolo 02:05, 10 November 2009 (EST)

Reboot after installing the driver

It's mentioned here: Rebooting is generally recommended after updating kernel and graphic drivers.

I created a Tip at the end of the Install section saying just that, because many people install the drivers, 'startx' and <sadface>.
