Grabbing infos on your X server version

It can be pretty useful to know the version of your X server installation.

There are at least two ways to get this piece of information. As root, issue one of the following commands :

root@localhost:~#X -version


root@localhost:~# xdpyinfo | head

The last command will display the first 20 lines from the output of xdpyinfo

Make sure you have the package x11-utils installed so that the command xdpyinfo will be available.
