NAME
       vesa - Generic VESA video driver

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

DESCRIPTION
       vesa  is	 an XFree86 driver for generic VESA video cards.  It can drive
       most VESA-compatible video cards, but only makes	use of the basic stan-
       dard  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	XF86Config(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 "VBEBigEndian" "boolean"
	      This Option is only acted	upon on	big-endian systems.  Normally,
	      the driver will disallow colour  depths  and  framebuffer	 bpp's
	      that cannot be supported through simple byte-swapping of pixels.
	      This  option  exists  to	override  this	behaviour  should  the
	      adapter's	 BIOS be intelligent enough to detect host endianness.
