nv - NVIDIA video driver
Section "Device" Identifier "devname" Driver "nv" ... EndSection
nv is an XFree86 driver for NVIDIA video cards. The driver supports 2D acceleration and provides support for the fol- lowing framebuffer depths: 8, 15, 16 (except Riva128) and 24. All visual types are supported for depth 8, TrueColor and DirectColor visuals are supported for the other depths with the exception of the Riva128 which only supports TrueColor in the higher depths.
The nv driver supports PCI and AGP video cards based on the following NVIDIA chips: RIVA 128 NV3 RIVA TNT NV4 RIVA TNT2 NV5 GeForce 256, QUADRO NV10 GeForce2, QUADRO2 NV11 & NV15 GeForce3, QUADRO DCC NV20 nForce, nForce2 NV1A, NV1F GeForce4, QUADRO4 NV17, NV18, NV25, NV28 GeForce FX, QUADRO FX NV30, NV31, NV34, NV35, NV36, NV37, NV38, NV40, NV41, NV43, NV44, NV45
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 and the amount of video memory present for all chips. XFree86 Version 4.5.0 1 NV(4) UNIX Programmer's Manual NV(4) The following driver Options are supported: Option "HWCursor" "boolean" Enable or disable the HW cursor. Default: on. Option "NoAccel" "boolean" Disable or enable acceleration. Default: acceleration is enabled. Option "UseFBDev" "boolean" Enable or disable use of on OS-specific fb interface (and is not supported on all OSs). See fbdevhw(4) for further information. Default: off. Option "CrtcNumber" "integer" GeForce2 MX, nForce2, Quadro4, GeForce4, Quadro FX and GeForce FX may have two video outputs. The driver attempts to autodetect which one the monitor is con- nected to. In the case that autodetection picks the wrong one, this option may be used to force usage of a particular output. The options are "0" or "1". Default: autodetected. Option "FlatPanel" "boolean" The driver usually can autodetect the presence of a digital flat panel. In the case that this fails, this option can be used to force the driver to treat the attached device as a digital flat panel. With this driver, a digital flat panel will only work if it was POSTed by the BIOS, that is, the machine must have booted to the panel. If you have a dual head card you may also need to set the option CrtcNumber described above. Default: off. Option "FPDither" "boolean" Many digital flat panels (particularly ones on laptops) have only 6 bits per component color resolution. This option tells the driver to dither from 8 bits per com- ponent to 6 before the flat panel truncates it. This is only supported in depth 24 on GeForce2 MX, nForce2, GeForce4, Quadro4, Geforce FX and Quadro FX. Default: off. Option "FPScale" "boolean" Supported only on GeForce4, Quadro4, Geforce FX and Quadro FX. This option tells to the driver to scale lower resolutions up to the flat panel's native resolu- tion. Default: on. Option "Rotate" "CW" Option "Rotate" "CCW" XFree86 Version 4.5.0 2 NV(4) UNIX Programmer's Manual NV(4) Rotate the display clockwise or counterclockwise. This mode is unaccelerated. Default: no rotation. Note: The Resize and Rotate extension will be disabled if the Rotate option is used. Option "ShadowFB" "boolean" Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer. Default: off.
