SYNOPSIS

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.
