GLINT(4)               FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual               GLINT(4)

NAME
       glint - GLINT/Permedia video driver

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

DESCRIPTION
       glint is an XFree86 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 results with FBDev support), 16, 24 (32 bpp
       recommended, 24 bpp has problems), 30, and an 8+24 overlay mode.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       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)
       chips.

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:

           "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
       support.

       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
              enabled.

       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
              information.  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:
              off.
