NAME
       vesa - Generic VESA video driver

SYNOPSIS
       Section "Device"
	 Identifier "devname"
	 Driver	"vesa"
	 ...
       EndSection

DESCRIPTION
       vesa is an Xorg driver for generic VESA video cards.  It	can drive most
       VESA-compatible video cards, but	only makes use of the  basic  standard
       VESA core that is common	to these cards.	 The driver supports depths 8,
       15 16 and 24.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       The vesa	driver supports	most VESA-compatible video cards.   There  are
       some known exceptions, and those	should be listed here.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please  refer  to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration	details.  This
       section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.

       The driver auto-detects the presence of VESA-compatible hardware.   The
       ChipSet	name  may  optionally be specified in the config file "Device"
       section,	and will override the auto-detection:

	   "vesa"

       The following driver Options are	supported:

       Option "ShadowFB" "boolean"
	      Enable or	disable	use of the shadow framebuffer layer.  Default:
	      on.

	      This option is recommended for performance reasons.

       Option "ModeSetClearScreen" "boolean"
	      Clear  the  screen on mode set. Some BIOSes seem to be broken in
	      the sense	that the newly set video mode is  bogus	 if  they  are
	      asked to clear the screen	during mode setting. If	you experience
	      problems try to turn this	option off. Default: on.
