       glint - GLINT/Permedia video driver

       Section "Device"
	 Identifier "devname"
	 Driver	"glint"

       glint  is  an Xorg driver for 3Dlabs & Texas Instruments	GLINT/Permedia
       based video cards. The driver is	rather fully accelerated, and provides
       support	for  the following framebuffer depths: 8, 15 (may give bad re-
       sults with FBDev	support), 16, 24 (32 bpp recommended, 24 bpp has prob-
       lems), 30, and an 8+24 overlay mode.

       The  glint  driver supports 3Dlabs (GLINT MX, GLINT 500TX, GLINT	300SX,
       GLINT GAMMA, GLINT DELTA, GLINT GAMMA2, Permedia, Permedia 2,  Permedia
       2v,  Permedia  3,  R3, R4) and Texas Instruments	(Permedia, Permedia 2)

       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:

	   "ti_pm2",  "ti_pm",	"r4",  "pm3",  "pm2v",	"pm2",	"pm", "300sx",
	   "500tx", "mx", "gamma", "gamma2", "delta"

       The driver will try to auto-detect the amount of	video  memory  present
       for  all	 chips.	  If it's not detected correctly, the actual amount of
       video memory should be specified	with a VideoRam	entry  in  the	config
       file "Device" section.

       Additionally,  you  may	need to	specify	the bus	ID of your card	with a
       BusID entry in the config file "Device" section,	especially with	 FBDev

       The following driver Options are	supported:

       Option "UseFlatPanel" "boolean"
	      Enable the FlatPanel feature on the Permedia3.  Default: off.

       Option "SWCursor" "boolean"
	      Enable  or  disable  the	SW cursor.  Default: off.  This	option
	      disables the HWCursor option and vice versa.

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

       Option "Overlay"
	      Enable  8+24  overlay  mode.   Only appropriate for depth	24, 32
	      bpp.  (Note: This	hasn't been  tested  with  FBDev  support  and
	      probably	won't  work.)	Recognized values are: "8,24", "24,8".
	      Default: off.

       Option "PciRetry" "boolean"
	      Enable or	disable	PCI retries.  (Note: This  doesn't  work  with
	      Permedia2	based cards for	Amigas.)  Default: off.

       Option "ShadowFB" "boolean"
	      Enable  or  disable use of the shadow framebuffer	layer.	(Note:
	      This disables hardware acceleration.)  Default: off.

       Option "UseFBDev" "boolean"
	      Enable or	disable	use of an OS-specific fb interface  (which  is
	      not supported on all OSs).  See fbdevhw(4x) for further informa-
	      tion.  Default: off.

       Option "BlockWrite" "boolean"
	      Enable or	disable	block writes for the various Permedia 2	chips.
	      This  improves acceleration in general, but disables it for some
	      special cases.  Default: off.

       Option "FireGL3000" "boolean"
	      If you have a card of the	same name,  turn  this	on.   Default:

       The Permedia 2 xv driver	supports some additional options:

       Option "Device" "string"
	      A	 path to the Permedia 2	kernel driver. This is required	for Xv

       Option "InputBuffers" "integer"
	      Sets the number of buffers for incoming data. Minimum of 1,  max
	      of 2.

       Option "InputFramesPerSec" "integer"
	      Expected frames per second for incoming data.

       Option "InputEncoding" "string"
	      The encoding that	input data will	have.

       Option "OutputBuffers" "integer"
	      This  should  probably  set  the	number of buffers for outgoing
	      data. It actually	does nothing.

       Option "OutputFramesPerSec" "integer"
	      Expected frames per second for outgoing data.

       Option "OutputEncoding" "string"
	      The encoding to put output data in.
