TinyCorePure64 8.0

Title:          xf86-video-intel.tcz
Description:    xorg intel video driver
Version:        20170216
Extension_by:   juanito

Should Xfbdev.tcz be included in the dep of this extension?
I know I need to include Xfbdev.tcz in onboot.lst in order for startx  to find an xserver

it seems logical then to have Xfbdev be listed in the dependencies?
what about the other xf86-video-CHIPSET.tcz packages?

Title:          Xfbdev.tcz
Description:    X framebuffer
Version:        1.3.0
Extension_by:   juanito

on a similar note should Xlibs.tcz be included with Xfbdev.tcz as Xlibs.tcz is needed for startx as well?

Are they excluded for a specific reason?
Are there use cases where you would not want them included?

I'm not familiar enough with X
Thoughts comments?

There are 3 X servers in TC:
Xvesa, Xfbdev, Xorg
Xvesa only works on 32-bit system.
Xfbdev crashes on some hardware.
Xorg is the biggest.

Not sure about that.

Correct but doesn't xf86-video-intel use only Xfbdev? Or can it communicate with at least one other xserver?

Also what about Nano-X it seems to be a fourth Xserver although likely not relevant to the discussion.

Tiny core is stripped so it is making me learn a lot, it's a fun challenge but I keep loosing myself down rabbit holes.

xf86-video-intel is a Xorg driver.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
