Redirect from Framebuffer

The article has a cleanup notice saying it should explain what a framebuffer is since Framebuffer redirects here. I agree it should a bit, but I think a bigger issue is: *why* does Framebuffer redirect here, and should it? There are multiple possible framebuffer drivers. --DHouck (talk) 23:21, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

(Adding later): Especially because the required `uvesafb-dkms` package is AUR, and `vesafb` is enabled by non-AUR kernels. It might not be as good (this article claims it isnʼt; I saw a claim elsewhere that as of recent kernels it actually is) but the main page about the topic shouldnʼt be AUR-only. --DHouck (talk) 00:10, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
