NAME
       apm - Alliance ProMotion	video driver

SYNOPSIS
       Section "Device"
	 Identifier "devname"
	 Driver	"apm"
	 ...
       EndSection

DESCRIPTION
       apm is an Xorg driver for Alliance ProMotion video cards. The driver is
       accelerated  for	 supported  hardware/depth  combination.  It  supports
       framebuffer  depths of 8, 15, 16, 24 and	32 bits. For 6420, 6422, AT24,
       AT3D and	AT25, all depths are fully accelerated except 24 bpp for which
       only screen to screen copy and rectangle	filling	is accelerated.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       The  apm	 driver	 supports  PCI	and  ISA  video	cards on the following
       Alliance	ProMotion chipsets

       ProMotion 6420

       ProMotion 6422

       AT24

       AT3D

       AT25

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:

	   "6422", "at24", "at3d".

	   The AT25 is Chipset "at3d" and the 6420 is 6422.

	   The	driver will auto-detect	the amount of video memory present for
	   all chips. The actual amount	of video memory	can also be  specified
	   with	a VideoRam entry in the	config file "Device" section.

	   The following driver	Options	are supported:

	   Option "HWCursor" "boolean"
		  Enable or disable the	hardware cursor.  Default: on.

	   Option "NoAccel" "boolean"
		  Disable  or  enable  acceleration.  Default: acceleration is
		  enabled.

	   Option "PciRetry" "boolean"
		  Enable or disable PCI	retries.  Default: off.

	   Option "Remap_DPMS_On" "string"

	   Option "Remap_DPMS_Standby" "string"

	   Option "Remap_DPMS_Suspend" "string"

	   Option "Remap_DPMS_Off" "string"
		  Remaps the corresponding DPMS	events.	 I've  found  that  my
		  Hercules  128/3D  swaps Off and Suspend events. You can cor-
		  rect that with
			 Option	"Remap_DPMS_Suspend" "Off"
			 Option	"Remap_DPMS_Off" "Suspend"
		  in the Device	section	of the config file.

		  Option "SWCursor" "boolean"
			 Force the software cursor.  Default: off.

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