NAME

     glint - GLINT/Permedia video driver

SYNOPSIS

     EndSection

DESCRIPTION

     glint is an XFree86 driver for 3Dlabs & Texas Instruments
     GLINT/Permedia based video cards. The driver is rather fully
     accelerated, and provides support for the following frame-
     buffer depths: 8, 15 (may give bad results with FBDev sup-
     port), 16, 24 (32 bpp recommended, 24 bpp has problems), 30,
     and an 8+24 overlay mode.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

     The glint driver supports 3Dlabs (GLINT MX, GLINT 500TX,
     GLINT 300SX, GLINT GAMMA, GLINT DELTA, GLINT GAMMA2, Per-
     media, Permedia 2, Permedia 2v, Permedia 3, R3, R4) and
     Texas Instruments (Permedia, Permedia 2) chips.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

     Please refer to XF86Config(5) for general configuration
     details.  This section only covers configuration details
     specific to this driver.

     The driver auto-detects the chipset type, but the following
     ChipSet names may optionally be specified in the config file
     "Device" section, and will override the auto-detection:

         "ti_pm2", "ti_pm", "r4", "pm3", "pm2v", "pm2", "pm",
         "300sx", "500tx", "mx", "gamma", "gamma2", "delta"

     The driver will try to auto-detect the amount of video
     memory present for all chips.  If it's not detected
     correctly, the actual amount of video memory should be
     specified with a VideoRam entry in the config file "Device"
     section.

     Additionally, you may need to specify the bus ID of your
     card with a BusID entry in the config file "Device" section,
     especially with FBDev support.

     The following driver Options are supported:

     Option "UseFlatPanel" "boolean"
          Enable the FlatPanel feature on the Permedia3.
          Default: off.

     Option "SWCursor" "boolean"
          Enable or disable the SW cursor.  Default: off. This
          option disables the HWCursor option and vice versa.

     Option "NoAccel" "boolean"
          Disable or enable acceleration.  Default: acceleration
          is enabled.

     Option "Overlay"
          Enable 8+24 overlay mode.  Only appropriate for depth
          24, 32 bpp. (Note: This hasn't been tested with FBDev
          support and probably won't work.) Recognized values
          are: "8,24", "24,8". Default: off.

     Option "PciRetry" "boolean"
          Enable or disable PCI retries. (Note: This doesn't work
          with Permedia2 based cards for Amigas.)  Default: off.

     Option "ShadowFB" "boolean"
          Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer.
          (Note: This disables hardware acceleration.)  Default:
          off.

     Option "UseFBDev" "boolean"
          Enable or disable use of an OS-specific fb interface
          (which is not supported on all OSs).  See fbdevhw(4)
          for further information. Default: off.

     Option "BlockWrite" "boolean"
          Enable or disable block writes for the various Permedia
          2 chips. This improves acceleration in general, but
          disables it for some special cases.  Default: off.

     Option "FireGL3000" "boolean"
          If you have a card of the same name, turn this on.
          Default: off.
