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 excep-
       tions, 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.
