Nested X server

Xnest is a nested X server that simply relays all its requests to another X server, where it runs as a client. This means that it appears as another window in your current X session. Xnest relies upon its parent X server for font services.

Use of the Xephyr X server instead of Xnest is recommended.

More information about X.Org can be found at: <URL:>

This package is built from the xserver module.
