DESCRIPTION

       glint  is  an Xorg driver for 3Dlabs & Texas Instruments GLINT/Permedia based video cards.
       The driver is rather fully accelerated, and provides support for the following framebuffer
       depths:  8,  15  (may give bad results with FBDev support), 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,  Permedia,  Permedia  2, Permedia 2v, Permedia 3, R3, R4) and Texas
       Instruments (Permedia, Permedia 2) chips.

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, 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.

       The Permedia 2 xv driver supports some additional options:

       Option "Device" "string"
              A path to the Permedia 2 kernel driver. This is required for Xv support.

       Option "InputBuffers" "integer"
              Sets the number of buffers for incoming data. Minimum of 1, max of 2.

       Option "InputFramesPerSec" "integer"
              Expected frames per second for incoming data.

       Option "InputEncoding" "string"
              The encoding that input data will have.

       Option "OutputBuffers" "integer"
              This  should probably set the number of buffers for outgoing data. It actually does
              nothing.

       Option "OutputFramesPerSec" "integer"
              Expected frames per second for outgoing data.

       Option "OutputEncoding" "string"
              The encoding to put output data in.
