Package: v86d @ 0.1.10

Synopsis

Userspace helper for uvesafb

Description

v86d provides a backend for kernel drivers that need to execute x86 BIOS code. The code is executed in a controlled environment and the results are passed back to the kernel via the netlink interface. v86d is required by the uvesafb Linux kernel module that provides an fbdev framebuffer when Kernel Mode Setting is unavailable. It can be a last resort when no other Xorg X server driver works.
