DESCRIPTION

       nouveau  is an Xorg driver for NVIDIA video cards.  The driver supports
       2D acceleration and provides  support  for  the  following  framebuffer
       depths:  (15,)  16   and 24.  TrueColor visuals are supported for these
       depths.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       The nouveau driver supports PCI, PCI-Express and AGP video cards  based
       on the following NVIDIA chips:

       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

       GeForce 6XXX          NV40, NV41, NV43, NV44, NV45, C51

       GeForce 7XXX          G70, G71, G72, G73

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

       Please  refer  to xorg.conf(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.

       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 "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 component to 6  before  the
              flat panel truncates it.  Default: off.

       Option "FPScale" "boolean"
              Supported only on GeForce4 and newer chips, this option tells to
              the driver to scale lower resolutions up  to  the  flat  panel’s
              native resolution.  Default: on.

       Option "ScalingMode" "string"
              Only  for  the  randr-1.2  driver,  this  allows  to set the DFP
              scaling mode.  The options are "fullscreen", "aspect", "noscale"
              and "panel". Default: "aspect".

       Option "ShadowFB" "boolean"
              Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer.  Default:
              off.
