How can I get a list of what x video drivers are on my system?


How can I get a list of what X video drivers are on my system? Preferably not using a package manager (since I'm not sure I trust it to not miss stuff like the nvidia driver). Googling didn't give anything useful :-(

Hi, I can find all my graphic drivers in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ , maybe start there; I can't guarantee that the nvidia driver installs there too.
