What is slow VESA Server mean? Please Help

I keeping getting an error on all my thin client workstations, which says

auto probe of the video card failed you should specify the proper X-server in the LTS conf proceeding with slow vesa server.


The mother board i have is a K7VM3 AS ROCK MOTHER BOARD WITH intergrated s3 unichrome video built in to the board in which I am using. Do i have to specify the driver module for my video card and if so what is it for my card?

vesa is a generic video driver for Linux that will run most video cards- chips. Have you checked to see if your hardware is compatable with Linux? Looks like Linux does not like your S3 video chip. I've have problems with S3 before. If so you will have to see if the manufacturer supports Linux with a module (driver). If not you may need to use another video card-chip. You should be able to use it CLI though.
