Common shorthand for *graphics* hardware. AMD/ATI? Intel? NVidia? Matrox? Other?

Model? e.g.
# inxi -GxxSM

           compat-v: 3.0 direct render: Yes

The keys in there are the PCI ID, the server driver in use, and the available alternative
server drivers, but much else is useful for troubleshooting.

tty1 became special with the introduction of systemd. Do not use tty1 for X. Instead
use tty2 and/or tty3 and/or tty4 and/or tty5 and/or tty6. Buster may have this fixed,
as upstream has apparently fixed it 3 months ago.
