       XFree86 - X11R6 X server

       XFree86 [:display] [option ...]

       XFree86	is  a  full featured X server that was originally designed for
       UNIX and	UNIX-like operating systems running on Intel x86 hardware.  It
       now runs	on a wider range of hardware and OS platforms.

       This  work  was	originally derived from	X386 1.2 by Thomas Roell which
       was contributed to X11R5	by Snitily Graphics Consulting	Service.   The
       XFree86	server architecture was	redesigned for the 4.0 release,	and it
       includes	among many other things	a loadable module system derived  from
       code  donated  by Metro Link, Inc.  The current XFree86 release is com-
       patible with X11R6.6.

       XFree86 operates	under a	wide range of operating	systems	 and  hardware
       platforms.   The	 Intel x86 (IA32) architecture is the most widely sup-
       ported hardware platform.   Other  hardware  platforms  include	Compaq
       Alpha,  Intel IA64, SPARC and PowerPC.  The most	widely supported oper-
       ating systems are the free/OpenSource UNIX-like systems such as	Linux,
       FreeBSD,	NetBSD and OpenBSD.  Commercial	UNIX operating systems such as
       Solaris (x86) and UnixWare are also supported.  Other supported operat-
       ing systems include LynxOS, and GNU Hurd.  Darwin and Mac OS X are sup-
       ported with the XDarwin(1) X server.  Win32/Cygwin  is  supported  with
       the XWin	X server.

       XFree86	supports  connections  made using the following	reliable byte-

	   On most platforms, the "Local" connection  type  is	a  UNIX-domain
	   socket.   On	 some System V platforms, the "local" connection types
	   also	include	STREAMS	pipes, named pipes, and	some other mechanisms.

	   XFree86  listens  on	 port  6000+n,	where n	is the display number.
	   This	connection type	can be disabled	with the -nolisten option (see
	   the Xserver(1) man page for details).

       For  operating  systems	that support local connections other than Unix
       Domain sockets (SVR3 and	SVR4), there is	a compiled-in list  specifying
       the  order  in  which local connections should be attempted.  This list
       can be overridden by the	XLOCAL environment variable  described	below.
       If  the	display	name indicates a best-choice connection	should be made
       (e.g.  :0.0), each connection mechanism is  tried  until	 a  connection
       succeeds	or no more mechanisms are available.  Note: for	these OSs, the
       Unix Domain socket connection is	treated	 differently  from  the	 other
       local  connection  types.   To  use  it	the connection must be made to

       The XLOCAL environment variable should contain a	list of	one more  more
       of the following:


       which  represent	 SVR4  Named Streams pipe, Old-style USL Streams pipe,
       SCO XSight Streams pipe,	and ISC	Streams	pipe, respectively.   You  can
       select  a  single  mechanism  (e.g.   XLOCAL=NAMED), or an ordered list
       (e.g. XLOCAL="NAMED:PTS:SCO").  his variable overrides the  compiled-in
       defaults.   For	SVR4 it	is recommended that NAMED be the first prefer-
       ence connection.	 The default setting is	PTS:NAMED:ISC:SCO.

       To globally override the	compiled-in defaults, you should  define  (and
       export  if  using  sh or	ksh) XLOCAL globally.  If you use startx(1) or
       xinit(1), the definition	should be at the top of	 your  .xinitrc	 file.
       If  you	use  xdm(1),  the  definitions	should	be  early  on  in  the
       /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession script.

       XFree86 supports	several	mechanisms for supplying/obtaining  configura-
       tion  and  run-time parameters: command line options, environment vari-
       ables, the XF86Config(5)	configuration file, auto-detection, and	 fall-
       back  defaults.	When the same information is supplied in more than one
       way, the	highest	precedence mechanism is	used.  The list	of  mechanisms
       is ordered from highest precedence to lowest.  Note that	not all	param-
       eters can be supplied via all  methods.	 The  available	 command  line
       options	and  environment  variables  (and some defaults) are described
       here and	in the Xserver(1) manual page.	Most configuration file	param-
       eters,  with  their defaults, are described in the XF86Config(5)	manual
       page.   Driver  and  module  specific  configuration   parameters   are
       described in the	relevant driver	or module manual page.

       Starting	 with version 4.4, XFree86 has support for generating a	usable
       configuration at	run-time when no XF86Config(5) configuration  file  is
       provided.   The initial version of this automatic configuration support
       is targeted at the most popular hardware	and  software  platforms  sup-
       ported  by  XFree86.  Some details about	how this works can be found in
       the CONFIGURATION section below and in the getconfig(1) manual page.

       In addition to the normal server	options	described  in  the  Xserver(1)
       manual page, XFree86 accepts the	following command line switches:

       vtXX    XX  specifies  the Virtual Terminal device number which XFree86
	       will use.  Without this option, XFree86	will  pick  the	 first
	       available  Virtual  Terminal  that  it can locate.  This	option
	       applies only to platforms such as Linux,	BSD,  SVR3  and	 SVR4,
	       that have virtual terminal support.

	       Allow  the server to start up even if the mouse device can't be
	       opened or  initialised.	 This  is  equivalent  to  the	Allow-
	       MouseOpenFail XF86Config(5) file	option.

	       Allow  changes  to  keyboard  and mouse settings	from non-local
	       clients.	 By default, connections from  non-local  clients  are
	       not  allowed to do this.	 This is equivalent to the AllowNonLo-
	       calModInDev XF86Config(5) file option.

	       Make the	VidMode	extension available to remote  clients.	  This
	       allows  the xvidtune client to connect from another host.  This
	       is equivalent to	the AllowNonLocalXvidtune  XF86Config(5)  file
	       option.	By default non-local connections are not allowed.

	       Append  the  automatic  XFree86 server configuration data to an
	       existing	configuration file.  By	default	this is	only done when
	       an  existing configuration file does not	contain	any ServerLay-
	       out sections or any Screen sections.  This can  be  useful  for
	       providing  configuration	 details for things not	currently han-
	       dled by the automatic configuration mechanism,  such  as	 input
	       devices,	font paths, etc.

	       Use  automatic XFree86 server configuration, even if a configu-
	       ration file is available.  By default  automatic	 configuration
	       is only used when a configuration file cannot be	found.

       -bgamma value
	       Set  the	 blue gamma correction.	 value must be between 0.1 and
	       10.  The	default	is 1.0.	 Not all drivers  support  this.   See
	       also the	-gamma,	-rgamma, and -ggamma options.

       -bpp n  No  longer  supported.	Use -depth to set the color depth, and
	       use -fbbpp if you really	need to	 force	a  non-default	frame-
	       buffer (hardware) pixel format.

	       When  this  option  is  specified, the XFree86 server loads all
	       video driver modules, probes for	available hardware, and	writes
	       out  an	initial	XF86Config(5) file based on what was detected.
	       This option currently has some problems on some platforms,  but
	       in  most	 cases it is a good way	to bootstrap the configuration
	       process.	 This option is	only available when the	server is  run
	       as root (i.e, with real-uid 0).

       -crt /dev/ttyXX
	       SCO  only.   This is the	same as	the vt option, and is provided
	       for compatibility with the native SCO X server.

       -depth n
	       Sets the	default	color depth.  Legal values are 1,  4,  8,  15,
	       16, and 24.  Not	all drivers support all	values.

	       Disable dynamic modification of input device settings.  This is
	       equivalent to the DisableModInDev XF86Config(5) file option.

	       Disable the the parts of	the VidMode  extension	(used  by  the
	       xvidtune	 client)  that	can be used to change the video	modes.
	       This is equivalent to the DisableVidModeExtension XF86Config(5)
	       file option.

       -fbbpp n
	       Sets the	number of framebuffer bits per pixel.  You should only
	       set this	if you're sure it's necessary; normally	the server can
	       deduce the correct value	from -depth above.  Useful if you want
	       to run a	depth 24  configuration	 with  a  24  bpp  framebuffer
	       rather  than the	(possibly default) 32 bpp framebuffer (or vice
	       versa).	Legal values are 1, 8, 16, 24, 32.   Not  all  drivers
	       support all values.

	       Swap the	default	values for the black and white pixels.

       -gamma value
	       Set  the	 gamma	correction.  value must	be between 0.1 and 10.
	       The default is 1.0.  This value is applied equally to the R,  G
	       and  B  values.	Those values can be set	independently with the
	       -rgamma,	-bgamma, and -ggamma options.  Not all drivers support

       -ggamma value
	       Set  the	green gamma correction.	 value must be between 0.1 and
	       10.  The	default	is 1.0.	 Not all drivers  support  this.   See
	       also the	-gamma,	-rgamma, and -bgamma options.

	       The  XFree86 server checks the ABI revision levels of each mod-
	       ule that	it loads.  It will normally  refuse  to	 load  modules
	       with  ABI  revisions that are newer than	the server's.  This is
	       because such modules might use interfaces that the server  does
	       not  have.  When	this option is specified, mismatches like this
	       are downgraded from fatal  errors  to  warnings.	  This	option
	       should be used with care.

	       Prevent	the server from	detaching its initial controlling ter-
	       minal.  This option is only useful when debugging  the  server.
	       Not all platforms support (or can use) this option.

       -keyboard keyboard-name
	       Use the XF86Config(5) file InputDevice section called keyboard-
	       name as the core	keyboard.  This	option	is  ignored  when  the
	       ServerLayout section specifies a	core keyboard.	In the absence
	       of both a ServerLayout section and this option, the first rele-
	       vant InputDevice	section	is used	for the	core keyboard.

       -layout layout-name
	       Use  the	XF86Config(5) file ServerLayout	section	called layout-
	       name.  By default the first ServerLayout	section	is used.

       -logfile	filename
	       Use the file called filename as the XFree86  server  log	 file.
	       The  default  log  file is /var/log/XFree86.n.log on most plat-
	       forms, where n is the display number  of	 the  XFree86  server.
	       The  default may	be in a	different directory on some platforms.
	       This option is only available when the server is	 run  as  root
	       (i.e, with real-uid 0).

       -logverbose [n]
	       Sets the	verbosity level	for information	printed	to the XFree86
	       server log file.	 If the	n value	isn't  supplied,  each	occur-
	       rence  of  this option increments the log file verbosity	level.
	       When the	n value	is supplied, the log file verbosity  level  is
	       set  to that value.  The	default	log file verbosity level is 3.

       -modulepath searchpath
	       Set the module search path  to  searchpath.   searchpath	 is  a
	       comma  separated	 list  of  directories	to  search for XFree86
	       server modules.	This option is only available when the	server
	       is run as root (i.e, with real-uid 0).

	       Disable appending the automatic XFree86 server configuration to
	       a partial static	configuration.

       -nosilk Disable Silken Mouse support.

	       Set the internal	pixmap format for depth	24 pixmaps to 24  bits
	       per pixel.  The default is usually 32 bits per pixel.  There is
	       normally	little reason to use this option.  Some	client	appli-
	       cations don't like this pixmap format, even though it is	a per-
	       fectly legal format.  This is equivalent	to the Pixmap XF86Con-
	       fig(5) file option.

	       Set  the	internal pixmap	format for depth 24 pixmaps to 32 bits
	       per pixel.  This	is usually the default.	 This is equivalent to
	       the Pixmap XF86Config(5)	file option.

       -pointer	pointer-name
	       Use  the	XF86Config(5) file InputDevice section called pointer-
	       name as the core	pointer.  This	option	is  ignored  when  the
	       ServerLayout  section specifies a core pointer.	In the absence
	       of both a ServerLayout section and this option, the first rele-
	       vant InputDevice	section	is used	for the	core pointer.

	       Causes  the server to exit after	the device probing stage.  The
	       XF86Config(5) file is still used	when this option is given,  so
	       information  that can be	auto-detected should be	commented out.

       -quiet  Suppress	most informational messages at startup.	 The verbosity
	       level is	set to zero.

       -rgamma value
	       Set  the	 red  gamma correction.	 value must be between 0.1 and
	       10.  The	default	is 1.0.	 Not all drivers  support  this.   See
	       also the	-gamma,	-bgamma, and -ggamma options.

	       When this option	is specified, the XFree86 server scans the PCI
	       bus, and	prints out some	information about each device that was
	       detected.  See also scanpci(1) and pcitweak(1).

       -screen screen-name
	       Use  the	 XF86Config(5) file Screen section called screen-name.
	       By default the screens referenced by the	 default  ServerLayout
	       section are used, or the	first Screen section when there	are no
	       ServerLayout sections.

	       This is the same	as the -version	option,	and  is	 included  for
	       compatibility  reasons.	It may be removed in a future release,
	       so the -version option should be	used instead.

       -weight nnn
	       Set RGB weighting at 16 bpp.  The default is 565.  This applies
	       only to those drivers which support 16 bpp.

       -verbose	[n]
	       Sets the	verbosity level	for information	printed	on stderr.  If
	       the n value isn't supplied,  each  occurrence  of  this	option
	       increments  the verbosity level.	 When the n value is supplied,
	       the verbosity level is set to that  value.   The	 default  ver-
	       bosity level is 0.

	       Print  out  the	server	version, patchlevel, release date, the
	       operating system/platform it  was  built	 on,  and  whether  it
	       includes	module loader support.

       -xf86config file
	       Read the	server configuration from file.	 This option will work
	       for any file when the server is run as root (i.e, with real-uid
	       0),  or	for files relative to a	directory in the config	search
	       path for	all other users.

       The XFree86 server is normally configured to recognize various  special
       combinations  of	 key  presses that instruct the	server to perform some
       action, rather than just	sending	the key	press event to a client	appli-
       cation.	 The  default  XKEYBOARD  keymap  defines the key combinations
       listed below.  The server also has these	key  combinations  builtin  to
       its  event handler for cases where the XKEYBOARD	extension is not being
       used.  When using the XKEYBOARD extension, which	key combinations  per-
       form which actions is completely	configurable.

       For  more  information  about when the builtin event handler is used to
       recognize the special key combinations, see the	documentation  on  the
       HandleSpecialKeys option	in the XF86Config(5) man page.

       The  special combinations of key	presses	recognized directly by XFree86

	       Immediately kills the server -- no questions asked.   This  can
	       be disabled with	the DontZap XF86Config(5) file option.

	       Change  video  mode  to next one	specified in the configuration
	       file.  This can be disabled  with  the  DontZoom	 XF86Config(5)
	       file option.

	       Change  video  mode to previous one specified in	the configura-
	       tion file.  This	can be disabled	 with  the  DontZoom  XF86Con-
	       fig(5) file option.

	       Not  treated  specially by default.  If the AllowClosedownGrabs
	       XF86Config(5) file option is specified, this key	sequence kills
	       clients	with  an  active  keyboard  or	mouse  grab as well as
	       killing any application that may	have locked the	 server,  nor-
	       mally using the XGrabServer(3) Xlib function.

	       Not  treated specially by default.  If the AllowDeactivateGrabs
	       XF86Config(5) file option is specified, this key	sequence deac-
	       tivates any active keyboard and mouse grabs.

	       For  BSD	and Linux systems with virtual terminal	support, these
	       keystroke combinations are used to switch to virtual  terminals
	       1  through  12,	respectively.	This  can be disabled with the
	       DontVTSwitch XF86Config(5) file option.

       XFree86 typically uses a	configuration file called XF86Config  for  its
       initial	setup.	Refer to the XF86Config(5) manual page for information
       about the format	of this	file.

       Starting	with version 4.4, XFree86 has a	 mechanism  for	 automatically
       generating a built-in configuration at run-time when no XF86Config file
       is present.  The	current	version	of this	automatic configuration	mecha-
       nism works in three ways.

       The  first  is  via  enhancements that have made	many components	of the
       XF86Config file optional.  This means  that  information	 that  can  be
       probed  or  reasonably deduced doesn't need to be specified explicitly,
       greatly reducing	the amount of built-in configuration information  that
       needs to	be generated at	run-time.

       The  second  is	to  use	 an external utility called getconfig(1), when
       available, to use meta-configuration information	to generate a suitable
       configuration  for  the	primary	 video device.	The meta-configuration
       information can be updated to allow an existing installation to get the
       best  out  of  new hardware or to work around bugs that are found post-

       The third is to have "safe" fallbacks for most  configuration  informa-
       tion.  This maximises the likelihood that the XFree86 server will start
       up in some usable configuration even when information  about  the  spe-
       cific hardware is not available.

       The  automatic  configuration  support for XFree86 is work in progress.
       It is currently aimed at	the most popular hardware and  software	 plat-
       forms  supported	 by  XFree86.	Enhancements  are  planned  for	future

       The XFree86 server config file can be found in a	 range	of  locations.
       These  are documented fully in the XF86Config(5)	manual page.  The most
       commonly	used locations are shown here.
