     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 34Device34 section, and will override the
          auto-detection:

              "vesa"

          The following driver Options are supported:

          Option 34ShadowFB34 34boolean34
               Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer.
               Default: on.

               This option is recommended for performance reasons.

          Option 34ModeSetClearScreen34 34boolean34
               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.
