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

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 "AccelMethod" "string"
              Specify the acceleration method. One of "none", or "exa". Default: exa.

       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: on.

       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.

       Option "SwapLimit" "integer"
              Set maximum allowed number of pending OpenGL double-buffer  swaps  for  a  drawable
              before a client is blocked.
              A  value  of 1 corresponds to double-buffering. A value of 2 corresponds to triple-
              buffering. Higher values may allow higher framerate,  but  also  increase  lag  for
              interactive  applications,  e.g.,  games.  Nouveau  currently  reliably  supports a
              maximum value of 2 on XOrg 1.12+. A maximum setting of  2  on  older  x-servers  is
              allowed,   but   it   will  break  conformance  with  the  OpenML  OML_sync_control
              specification  and  will  cause  failure  of  software  that  relies   on   correct
              presentation timing behaviour as defined in that specification.
              Default: 1.

       Option "DRI" "integer"
              Define  the  maximum  level  of  DRI  to  enable.  Valid  values  are  2 or 3.  exa
              acceleration will honor the  maximum  level  if  it  is  supported.   Under  glamor
              acceleration  DRI3  is  always  enabled  if supported, as glamor currently does not
              support DRI2. Default: 2 on exa, 3 on glamor.
