VESA(4)                FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                VESA(4)

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
       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 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.
