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

       Option "WrappedFB" "boolean"
              Enable or disable wfb, only affects nv50+. Useful for  some  legacy  configurations
              where high rendering latency is perceived.  Default: wfb is disabled.

       Option "GLXVBlank" "boolean"
              Synchronize  GLX  clients  to VBlank. Useful where tearing is a problem, harmful if
              the GPU isn't fast enough to keep up with the monitor refresh rate. Default: off.

       Option "ZaphodHeads" "string"
              Specify the randr output(s) to  use  with  zaphod  mode  for  a  particular  driver
              instance.  If you use this option you most use this option for all instances of the
              driver.
              For example: Option "ZaphodHeads" "LVDS,VGA-0" will assign xrandr outputs LVDS  and
              VGA-0 to this instance of the driver.

       Option "PageFlip" "boolean"
              Enable DRI2 page flipping. Default: on.
