NAME
       apm - Alliance ProMotion	video driver

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

DESCRIPTION
       apm is an XFree86 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 Al-
       liance ProMotion	chipsets

       ProMotion 6420

       ProMotion 6422

       AT24

       AT3D

       AT25

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please refer to XF86Config(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 "NoLinear" "boolean"
		  Disable or enable use	of linear frame	buffer.	 Default:  on.
		  Note:	it may or may not work.	Tell me	if you need it.

	   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.
