xdriinfo can be used to query configuration information of direct rendering drivers. If no command argument is specified it lists the names of the direct rendering drivers for all screens.

Valid commands are:

Print the number of screens.

driver screen

Print the name of the direct rendering driver for screen.

options screen|driver

Print the XML document describing the configuration options of a driver. The driver can be specified directly by driver name or indirectly by screen number. If the driver name is specified directly then no X connection is needed.



The default display.
