If you're working with GRASS in the sense of having already
used it, don't worry about XDRIVER :-) GRASS does that for you.
In case you still want to know:
The GRASS command d.mon starts XDRIVER for you. In detail:
If you use 'd.mon start=x0', d.mon looks for 'x0' in the
file $GISBASE/etc/monitorcap and finds a line starting with
x0:driver/XDRIVER:X-windows graphics display:
This tells it that it should start the executable
$GISBASE/driver/XDRIVER under the name of x0 - which is what
it does. Pop - there's your GRASS Monitor!
Hope I didn't confuse things too much (and hope this
is indeed what happens :-) )
