    The xorg module for Noveau opensource reverse-engineered NVIDIA driver, responsible of 2D acceleration. xf86-video-nouveau package usually.

    opensourced Linux "drivers" are split up in 2-3 different modules/parts, usually a kernel module that exposes the hardware to userspace, a userspace 3D acceleration provider (part of Mesa), and a userspace 2D acceleration provider that is a Xorg module.

    See here https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/
    Nouveau is composed of:
    -a Linux kernel KMS driver (nouveau),
    -Gallium3D drivers in Mesa,
    -Xorg DDX (xf86-video-nouveau).

    The kernel components have also been ported to NetBSD.


    (and now it seems NetBSD has xf86-video-nouveau too so they can use NVIDIA cards to drive a desktop PC as long as they don't need 3D acceleration)
