30 The <application>Xorg VESA Driver</application> contains the
31 Generic VESA video driver for the Xorg X server. This driver
32 is often used as fallback driver if the hardware specific
33 driver fails to load or is not present. If this driver is not
34 installed, Xorg Server will print a warning on startup, but it
35 can be safely ignored if hardware specific driver works well.
