Re: Enabling drm?

Do these changes look correct?

I took out most of the instructions since they are
generally done automatically and provided references
for the configuration details instead of repeating
them in the manual page.

The manual page already referred to X(7) and I continued
the usage, but it seems the manual page X(7) does not exist
for Xorg?

The file /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/doc/README.DRI is also referenced.
Should we include X11R6?

Kind regards,

Yorick Hardy
