       apm - Alliance ProMotion video driver

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

       apm  is  an Xorg 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 chipsets

       ProMotion 6420

       ProMotion 6422




       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:

           "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 config 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

           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 cor-
                  rect 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.
