       apm - Alliance ProMotion video driver

       Section "Device"
	 Identifier "devname"
	 Driver "apm"

       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.

       The apm driver supports PCI and ISA  video  cards  on  the  following  Alliance	ProMotion

       ProMotion 6420

       ProMotion 6422




       Please  refer to XF86Config(5x) for general configuration details.  This section only cov-
       ers 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  con-
	   fig 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 correct 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.
