DESCRIPTION

        amd  is  an  XFree86 driver for Advanced Micro Devicess GEODE processor
        family.  It uses the CIMARRON kit provided by Advanced  Micro  Devices.
        The  driver  is  accelerated,  and  provides  support for the following
        framebuffer depths: 8, 16 and 24.
        The amd driver supports GeodeLX (5536 companion chip).
        Please refer to XF86Config(5x) for general configuration details.  This
        section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.
 
        The  driver  will  auto-detect  the amount of video memory present.  If
        actual the amount of active video memory should be changed, this may be
        specified  with  a  VideoRam entry in the config file.  The driver will
        attempt to allocate all public/free reigons from the  framebuffer  mem‐
        ory,  as  allocated  by the kernel cimarron module.  All private frame‐
        buffer reservations should be made before  starting  X.   Note  that  X
        attempts  to  open  /dev/video#  devices during initialization, so that
        attached drivers may allocate framebuffer memory before X reserves  it.
        X  will try to reserve framebuffer memory using "/dev/cim" (char device
        node 10,156).
 
        "Device" section.
 
        The following driver Options are supported:
 
        Option "HWCursor"
        Option "SWCursor"
               Enable HW or SW cursor.
               Default: HW cursor.
 
        Option "Accel"
        Option "NoAccel"
               Disable or enable acceleration.
               Default: acceleration enabled.
 
        Option "Compression"
        Option "NoCompression"
               Disable or enable compression.
               Default: compression is enabled.
 
        Option "ShadowFB"
        Option "NoShadowFB"
               Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer.
               Default: off.
 
        Option "Rotate" "CW"
        Option "Rotate" "Invert"
        Option "Rotate" "CCW"
               The display may be "rotated" in 3 ways,  ClockWise,  Upside-Down
               and CounterClocwise using: This is accomplished using a "shadow"
               framebuffer, and using either a hardware or  software  operation
               to transform the image to the operational display buffer.
               Default: no rotation.
 
        Option "FPDestGeom" "WxH"
               This  allows the configuration to override the bios probe of the
               FlatPanel output interface.  Since flat-panels have fixed timing
               -  that  is,  only  one  "real" mode - the mode switch operation
               which normally might select a wide variety of operational states
               must  scale  the  mode  selection to fit the fixed panel timing.
               This option is used to communicate that the  mode  selection  is
               for  a  flat panel.  When this option is used, the bios probe is
               skipped and the specified geometry is used to derive timings.
               Default: bios.
 
        Option "FPActiveGeom" "WxH"
               This allows the configuration of the  active  flatpanel  display
               area.   This  area  must fit into the destination geometry area.
               The source (mode WxH) geometry will  be  scaled  to  the  active
               geometry,  and centered in the destination geometry of the Flat     
               Panel output.
               Default: FPDestGeom.
 
        Option "FlatPanel"
        Option "NoFlatPanel"
               This allows the configuration  to  override  the  initialization
               probe to enable or disable the FlatPanel output interface.
               Default: bios.
 
        Option "CrtEnable"
        Option "NoCrtEnable"
               This  allows  the  configuration  to override the initialization
               probe to enable or disable the CRT output interface.
               Default: bios.
 
        Option "OSMImageBuffers" "integer"
               This sets the number of scanline buffers to be allocated in off‐
               screen scanline memory for acceleration. This can take any value
               0 will disable  the  allocation.  Disabled  if  cannot  allocate
               requested scanline memory.
               Default: 20.
 
        Option "OSMColorExpBuffers" "integer"
               This sets the number of scanline buffers to be allocated in off‐
               screen color expansiopn memory for acceleration. This  can  take
               any  value  0  will  disable  the allocation. Disabled if cannot
               allocate requested scanline memory.
               Default: 20.
 
        TVOUT Options
 
        TVOUT is operated when a tv encoder has been selected by using the
               TV_Encoder option describe below, and a tv mode name is selected
               as the active display mode.  The list of tv mode names are:

DESCRIPTION

        amd  is  an  XFree86  driver for Advanced Micro Devices GEODE processor
        family.  It uses the DURANGO kit provided by  Advanced  Micro  Devices.
        The  driver  is  accelerated,  and  provides  support for the following
        framebuffer depths: 8, 16 and 24.
        The amd driver supports GXLV (5530 companion chip), SC1200, SC1400  and
        GX (5535 companion chip).
        Please refer to XF86Config(5x) for general configuration details.  This
        section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.
 
        The driver will auto-detect the amount of video memory present for  all
        chips.  If  the  amount  of  memory is detected incorrectly, the actual
        amount of video memory should be specified with a VideoRam entry in the
        config file "Device" section.
 
        The following driver Options are supported:
 
        Option "SWCursor" "boolean"
               Enable or disable the SW cursor.  Default: off.
 
        Option "HWCursor" "boolean"
               Enable or disable the HW cursor.  Default: on.
 
        Option "NoAccel" "boolean"
               Disable   or  enable  acceleration.   Default:  acceleration  is
               enabled.

               Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer.  Default:
               off.
 
        Option "Rotate" "CW"
               Rotate the display clockwise. This mode  is  unaccelerated,  and

               Default: no TV.
 
        Option "TV_Output" "SVIDEO"
               The  selected  TV  mode  output  is  coded  for  SVIDEO  signal.
               Default: no TV.
 
        Option "TV_Output" "YUV"
               The  selected  TV mode output is coded for YUV signal.  Default:
               no TV.
 
        Option "TV_Output" "SCART"
               The selected TV mode output is coded for SCART signal.  Default:
               no TV.
 
        Option "TVOverscan" x:yy:ww:hh"
               This  option  will let only the viewable display area smaller to
               be able to view on TV. The parameters xx: X-offset,  yy:  Y-off‐
               set, ww: Viewable width, hh: Viewable height.  Default: no TV.
