I see that very often in d-u there are a lot of xorg drivers downloaded, that seems to be unnecessary if they are not used.

A long time ago, nearly in another time, there was a script that we don't mention or use anymore, but in that script there was a function to remove this unused xorg drivers so it must be possible to do that.

So is there a way to do this, to remove the unused xorg drivers? If there is a way to do it, how do I know which is unused or maybe the right question is which one is used?

Or finally, shall I just forget it? Wink

You mean that script:

???
But is does not work correct anymore, since xorg is using evdev and udev.

No it was not that script. Forget about the script,that is not important.

The question is if it's possible to take away unused xorg drivers to get as little download as possible on each d-u, and if possible, how do I do it?

Theoretical you only need one xserver-xorg-video-foo and one xserver-xorg-input-foo.
Basicly i would install xserver-xorg-video-vesa and xserver-xorg-input-evdev.
But i don't know your hardware.
