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.
