Hi Frank,

No, the option to activate VBE in xorg.conf.
These 2 links talk about some of the options xorg.conf can have.


VBE is mentioned, although it is not well explained.

Yes, display initialization support is near complete, at least on paper.
This is why I think the time has come to remove VBE support.

Yeah, we can leave the software cursor option for now, but in the long run, the
support for it should be dropped.
I do agree that it should not be remove in the near future.
