 <h2>PreReq: Kernel ModeSetting and PageFlip IOCTL</h2>
-<p>At this point, kernel modesetting is upstream for Intel, ATI/AMD and
-nVidia chipsets.  Most distributions ship with kernel modesetting
-enabled by default and will work with Wayland out of the box.  The
-modesetting driver must also support the page flip ioctl, which only
-the Intel driver does at this point.</p>
+<p>At this point, Kernel ModeSetting (KMS) is upstream for Intel, AMD/ATI

+The KMS driver must also support the PageFlip IOCTL, which is currently
+the case for Intel and AMD/ATI graphics cards (XXX: nVidia?).
+Furthermore, a ddx (X video driver) with pageflip support is also required.
