       glint - GLINT/Permedia video driver

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

       glint  is an XFree86 driver for 3Dlabs &	Texas Instruments GLINT/Perme-
       dia based video cards. The driver is rather fully accelerated, and pro-
       vides support for the following framebuffer depths: 8, 15 (may give bad
       results with FBDev support), 16,	24 (32 bpp  recommended,  24  bpp  has
       problems), 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 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:

	   "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(4) 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:
