       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  Al-
       pha,  Intel IA64, SPARC and PowerPC.  The most widely supported operat-
       ing 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 lo-
       cal 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 op-
       tions and environment variables (and some defaults) are described  here
       and in the Xserver(1) manual page.  Most	configuration file parameters,
       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 ap-
	       plies 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 in-
	       crements	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 op-
	       erating	system/platform	 it  was  built	on, and	whether	it in-
	       cludes 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 in-
       formation  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-re-

       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  re-

       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.

       XFree86 has many	contributors world wide.  The names of	most  of  them
       can  be found in	the documentation, CHANGELOG files in the source tree,
       and in the actual source	code.  The names of the	 contributors  to  the
