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 recom-
       mended, 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(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:

	   "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  hard-
	      ware 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 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.
