Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

display Specifies the connection to the X server. screen Specifies which screen number the setting apply to. event_base_return Returns the base event number for the extension. error_base_return Returns the base error number for the extension. major_version_return Returns the major version number of the extension. minor_version_return Returns the minor version number of the extension. dotclock_return Returns the clock for the mode line. modecount_return Returns the number of video modes available in the server. zoom If greater than zero, indicates that the server should switch to the next mode, otherwise switch to the previous mode. lock Indicates that mode switching should be locked, if non-zero. modeline Specifies or returns the timing values for a video mode. modesinfo Returns the timing values and dotclocks for all of the available video modes. monitor Returns information about the monitor. x Specifies the desired X location for the viewport. x_return Returns the current X location of the viewport. y Specifies the desired Y location for the viewport. y_return Returns the current Y location of the viewport.

These functions provide an interface to the server extension XFree86-VidModeExtension which allows the video modes to be queried and adjusted dynamically and mode switching to be controlled. Applications that use these functions must be linked with -lXxf86vm MODELINE FUNCTIONS The XF86VidModeGetModeLine function is used to query the settings for the currently selected video mode. The calling program should pass a pointer to a XF86VidModeModeLine structure that it has already allocated. The function fills in the fields of the structure. If there are any server private values (currently only applicable to the S3 server) the function will allocate storage for them. There- fore, if the privsize field is non-zero, the calling program should call Xfree(private) to free the storage. XF86VidModeGetAllModeLines returns the settings for all video modes. The calling program supplies the address of a pointer which will be set by the function to point to an array of XF86VidModeModeInfo structures. The memory occupied by the array is dynamically allocated by the XF86VidModeGetAllModeLines function and should be freed by the caller. The first element of the array corresponds to the current video mode. The XF86VidModeModModeLine function can be used to change the settings of the current video mode provided the requested settings are valid (e.g. they don't exceed the capabilities of the monitor). Modes can be deleted with the XF86VidModeDeleteModeLine function. The specified mode must match an existing mode. To be considered a match, all of the fields of the given XF86VidModeModeInfo structure must match, except the privsize and private fields. If the mode to be deleted is the current mode, a mode switch to the next mode will occur first. The last remaining mode can not be deleted. The validity of a mode can be checked with the XF86VidModeValidateModeLine function. If the specified mode can be used by the server (i.e. meets all the constraints placed upon a mode by the combination of the server, card, and monitor) the function returns MODE_OK, otherwise it returns a value indicating the reason why the mode is invalid (as defined in xf86.h) MODE SWITCH FUNCTIONS When the function XF86VidModeSwitchMode is called, the server will change the video mode to next (or previous) video mode. The XF86VidMod- eSwitchToMode function can be used to switch directly to the specified mode. Matching is as specified in the description of the XF86Vid- ModeAddModeLine function above. The XF86VidModeLockModeSwitch function can be used to allow or disallow mode switching whether the request to switch modes comes from a call to the XF86VidModeSwitchMode or XF86VidModeSwitchToMode functions or from one of the mode switch key sequences. MONITOR FUNCTIONS Information known to the server about the monitor is returned by the XF86VidModeGetMonitor function. The hsync and vsync fields each point to an array of XF86VidModeSyncRange structures. The arrays contain nhsync and nvsync elements, respectively. The hi and low values will be equal if a discreate value was given in the XF86Config file. The vendor, model, hsync, and vsync fields point to dynamically allocated storage that should be freed by the caller. VIEWPORT FUNCTIONS The XF86VidModeGetViewPort and XF86VidModeSetViewPort functions can be used to, respectively, query and change the location of the upper left corner of the viewport into the virtual screen. OTHER FUNCTIONS The XF86VidModeQueryVersion function can be used to determine the version of the extension built into the server. The function XF86VidModeQueryExtension returns the lowest numbered error and event values assigned to the extension.
The XF86VidModeSetClientVersion, XF86VidModeGetDotClocks, XF86VidModeGetGamma, XF86VidModeSetGamma, XF86VidModeSetGammaRamp, XF86VidMod- eGetGammaRamp, XF86VidModeGetGammaRampSize, and XF86VidModeGetPermissions functions need to be documented. In the meantime, check the source code for information about how to use them.
