  65.  
  66.   5.  Configuration
  67.  
  68.   The driver auto-detects all device information necessary to initialize
  69.   the card. The only lines you need in the "Device" section of your
  70.   xorg.conf file are:
  71.  
  72.          Section "Device"
  73.              Identifier "Rage 128"
  74.              Driver     "r128"
  75.          EndSection
  76.  
  77.  
  78.   or let xorgconfig do this for you.
  79.  
  80.   However, if you have problems with auto-detection, you can specify:
  81.  
  82.   o  VideoRam - in kilobytes
  83.  
  84.   o  MemBase - physical address of the linear framebuffer
  85.  
  86.   o  IOBase - physical address of the memory mapped IO registers
  87.  
  88.   o  ChipID - PCI DEVICE ID
  89.  
  90.  
  91.  
  92.   6.  Driver Options
  93.  
  94.  
  95.   o  "hw_cursor" - request hardware cursor (default)
  96.  
  97.   o  "sw_cursor" - software cursor only
  98.  
  99.   o  "no_accel" - software rendering only
  100.  
  101.   o  "dac_8_bit" - use color weight 888 in 8 bpp mode (default)
  102.  
  103.   o  "dac_6_bit" - use color weight 666 in 8 bpp mode (VGA emulation)
