Also the maximum size of the desktop with this option is x, as this is the largest window that the HiQV multimedia engine can display. It has the same ID and is identified as a when probed. At this point no testing has been done and it is entirely possible that the ” MMIO option will lockup your machine. So for the various Chips and Technologies chips the maximum specifications are. As mentioned before, try disabling this option. That is from 0 to for 8bit depth, 0 to 32, for 15bit depth, etc. For LCD modes, it is possible that your LCD panel requires different panel timings at the text console than with a graphics mode.

In this way PseudoColor and TrueColor visuals can be used on the same screen. Further to this some of the XAA acceleration requires that the display pitch is a multiple of 64 pixels. Hi-Color and True-Color modes are implemented in the server.

However some video ram, particularly EDO, might not be fast enough to handle this, resulting in drawing errors on the screen. It is possible to turn the linear addressing off with this option. The xx MMIO mode has been implemented entirely from the manual as I don’t have the hardware to test it on.

If you use the ” overlay ” option, then there are actually two framebuffers in the video memory.


This might make certain modes impossible to obtain with a reasonable refresh rate. Also for non PCI machines specifying this force the linear base address to be this value, reprogramming the video processor to suit.

When constructing a modeline for use with the Chips and Technologies driver you’ll needed to considered several points. See ct for details. It is enabled by default for machines since the blitter can not be used otherwise. This support can be used to give a single display image on two screen with different refresh rates, or entirely different images on the two displays. Similar to the but also incorporates “PanelLink” drivers.

Possibly useful if you wish to use an old workstation monitor. Note that this option using the multimedia engine to its limit, and some manufacturers have set a default memory clock that will cause pixel errors with this option. Note that all of the chips except the rev A are 3. The four options are for 8bpp or less, 16, 24 or 32bpp LCD panel clocks, where the options above set the clocks to 65MHz.

Hence the server assumes a Using this option the user can override the maximum dot-clock and specify any value they prefer.

Firstly, the ct chipset must be installed on a PCI bus. The exception is for depths of 1 or 4bpp where linear addressing is turned off by default.

Hence you will see a line like. Note that the reverse is also true.

However use caution with these options, because there is no guarantee that driving the video processor beyond it capabilities won’t cause damage. The total memory requirements in this mode of operation is therefore similar to a 24bpp mode. Legal values for this key are depth dependent.

When the size of the mode used is less than the panel size, the default behaviour of the server is to align the left hand edge of the technologues with the left hand edge of the screen. Note that it is overridden by the ” SWcursor ” option.

So the value actually used for the memory clock might be significantly less than this maximum value. Typically this is probed correctly, but if you believe it to be mis-probed, this option might help.

Many DSTN screens use frame acceleration to improve technologied performance of the screen.

Information for Chips and Technologies Users

This may be related to a bug in one techno,ogies the accelerated functions, or a problem with the BitBLT engine.

Many LCD displays are incapable of using a 24bpp mode. Hardware cursors effectively speeds all graphics operations as the job of ensuring that the cursor remains on top is now given technolovies the hardware. If the screen is using a mode that BIOS doesn’t know about, then there is no guarantee that it will be resumed correctly.
