        glint - GLINT/Permedia video driver


        Section "Device"
          Identifier "devname"
          Driver "glint"


        glint  is  an Xorg 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.
        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)
        Please refer to xorg.conf(5x) 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
        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
        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
fbdevhw(4) for further informa‐
               tion.  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:
