Graphics supportEdit

  • Option: FB
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Support for frame buffer devices
      The frame buffer device provides an abstraction for the graphics hardware. It represents the frame buffer of some video hardware and allows application software to access the graphics hardware through a well-defined interface, so the software doesn't need to know anything about the low-level (hardware register) stuff.
      Frame buffer devices work identically across the different architectures supported by Linux and make the implementation of application programs easier and more portable; at this point, an X server exists which uses the frame buffer device exclusively. On several non-X86 architectures, the frame buffer device is the only way to use the graphics hardware.
      The device is accessed through special device nodes, usually located in the /dev directory, i.e. /dev/fb*.
      You need a utility program called fbset to make full use of frame buffer devices. Please read <file:Documentation/fb/framebuffer.txt> and the Framebuffer-HOWTO at <http://www.tahallah.demon.co.uk/programming/prog.html> for more information.
      Say Y here and to the driver for your graphics board below if you are compiling a kernel for a non-x86 architecture.
      If you are compiling for the x86 architecture, you can say Y if you want to play with it, but it is not essential. Please note that running graphical applications that directly touch the hardware (e.g. an accelerated X server) and that are not frame buffer device-aware may cause unexpected results. If unsure, say N.

    • default n
      This enables functions for handling video modes using the Generalized Timing Formula and the EDID parser. A few drivers rely on this feature such as the radeonfb, rivafb, and the i810fb. If your driver does not take advantage of this feature, choosing Y will just increase the kernel size by about 5K.


  • Option: FB_TILEBLITTING
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ... bool Enable Tile Blitting Support depends on FB default n ---help--- This enables tile blitting. Tile blitting is a drawing techniquewhere the screen is divided into rectangular sections (tiles), whereasthe standard blitting divides the screen into pixels. Because thedefault drawing element is a tile, drawing functions will be passedparameters in terms of number of tiles instead of number of pixels.For example, to draw a single character, instead of using bitmaps,an index to an array of bitmaps will be used. To clear or move arectangular section of a screen, the rectangle will be described interms of number of tiles in the x- and y-axis.

  • Option: FB_I810_GTF
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) use VESA Generalized Timing Formula
    • depends on FB_I810
      If you say Y, then the VESA standard, Generalized Timing Formula or GTF, will be used to calculate the required video timing values per video mode. Since the GTF allows nondiscrete timings (nondiscrete being a range of values as opposed to discrete being a set of values), you'll be able to use any combination of horizontal and vertical resolutions, and vertical refresh rates without having to specify your own timing parameters. This is especially useful to maximize the performance of an aging display, or if you just have a display with nonstandard dimensions. A VESA compliant monitor is recommended, but can still work with non-compliant ones. If you need or want this, then select this option. The timings may not be compliant with Intel's recommended values. Use at your own risk.
      If you say N, the driver will revert to discrete video timings using a set recommended by Intel in their documentation. If unsure, say N.

      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called matroxfb.
      You can pass several parameters to the driver at boot time or at module load time. The parameters look like "video=matrox:XXX", and are described in <file:Documentation/fb/matroxfb.txt>.


  • Option: FB_MATROX_MILLENIUM
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Millennium I/II support
    • depends on FB_MATROX
      Say Y here if you have a Matrox Millennium or Matrox Millennium II video card. If you select "Advanced lowlevel driver options" below, you should check 4 bpp packed pixel, 8 bpp packed pixel, 16 bpp packed pixel, 24 bpp packed pixel and 32 bpp packed pixel. You can also use font widths different from 8.


  • Option: FB_MATROX_MYSTIQUE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Mystique support
    • depends on FB_MATROX
      Say Y here if you have a Matrox Mystique or Matrox Mystique 220 video card. If you select "Advanced lowlevel driver options" below, you should check 8 bpp packed pixel, 16 bpp packed pixel, 24 bpp packed pixel and 32 bpp packed pixel. You can also use font widths different from 8.


  • Option: FB_MATROX_G
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) G100/G200/G400/G450/G550 support
    • depends on FB_MATROX
      Say Y here if you have a Matrox G100, G200, G400, G450 or G550 based video card. If you select "Advanced lowlevel driver options", you should check 8 bpp packed pixel, 16 bpp packed pixel, 24 bpp packed pixel and 32 bpp packed pixel. You can also use font widths different from 8.
      If you need support for G400 secondary head, you must first say Y to I2C support in the character devices section, and then to Matrox I2C support and G400 second head support here in the framebuffer section. G450/G550 secondary head and digital output are supported without additional modules.
      The driver starts in monitor mode. You must use the matroxset tool (available at <ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/linux/matrox-latest/>) to swap primary and secondary head outputs, or to change output mode. Secondary head driver always start in 640x480 resolution and you must use fbset to change it.
      Do not forget that second head supports only 16 and 32 bpp packed pixels, so it is a good idea to compile them into the kernel too. You can use only some font widths, as the driver uses generic painting procedures (the secondary head does not use acceleration engine).
      G450/G550 hardware can display TV picture only from secondary CRTC, and it performs no scaling, so picture must have 525 or 625 lines.


  • Option: FB_MATROX_I2C
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Matrox I2C support
    • depends on FB_MATROX && I2C
    • select I2C_ALGOBIT
      This drivers creates I2C buses which are needed for accessing the DDC (I2C) bus present on all Matroxes, an I2C bus which interconnects Matrox optional devices, like MGA-TVO on G200 and G400, and the secondary head DDC bus, present on G400 only.
      You can say Y or M here if you want to experiment with monitor detection code. You must say Y or M here if you want to use either second head of G400 or MGA-TVO on G200 or G400.
      If you compile it as module, it will create a module named i2c-matroxfb.


  • Option: FB_MATROX_MAVEN
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) G400 second head support
    • depends on FB_MATROX_G && FB_MATROX_I2C
      WARNING !!! This support does not work with G450 !!!
      Say Y or M here if you want to use a secondary head (meaning two monitors in parallel) on G400 or MGA-TVO add-on on G200. Secondary head is not compatible with accelerated XFree 3.3.x SVGA servers - secondary head output is blanked while you are in X. With XFree 3.9.17 preview you can use both heads if you use SVGA over fbdev or the fbdev driver on first head and the fbdev driver on second head.
      If you compile it as module, two modules are created, matroxfb_crtc2 and matroxfb_maven. Matroxfb_maven is needed for both G200 and G400, matroxfb_crtc2 is needed only by G400. You must also load i2c-matroxfb to get it to run.
      The driver starts in monitor mode and you must use the matroxset tool (available at <ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/linux/matrox-latest/>) to switch it to PAL or NTSC or to swap primary and secondary head outputs. Secondary head driver also always start in 640x480 resolution, you must use fbset to change it.
      Also do not forget that second head supports only 16 and 32 bpp packed pixels, so it is a good idea to compile them into the kernel too. You can use only some font widths, as the driver uses generic painting procedures (the secondary head does not use acceleration engine).


  • Option: FB_MATROX_MULTIHEAD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Multihead support
    • depends on FB_MATROX
      Say Y here if you have more than one (supported) Matrox device in your computer and you want to use all of them for different monitors ("multihead"). If you have only one device, you should say N because the driver compiled with Y is larger and a bit slower, especially on ia32 (ix86).
      If you said M to "Matrox unified accelerated driver" and N here, you will still be able to use several Matrox devices simultaneously: insert several instances of the module matroxfb into the kernel with insmod, supplying the parameter "dev=N" where N is 0, 1, etc. for the different Matrox devices. This method is slightly faster but uses 40 KB of kernel memory per Matrox card.
      There is no need for enabling 'Matrox multihead support' if you have only one Matrox card in the box.

    • select FB_CFB_COPYAREA
    • select FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT
      This is a `virtual' frame buffer device. It operates on a chunk of unswappable kernel memory instead of on the memory of a graphics board. This means you cannot see any output sent to this frame buffer device, while it does consume precious memory. The main use of this frame buffer device is testing and debugging the frame buffer subsystem. Do NOT enable it for normal systems! To protect the innocent, it has to be enabled explicitly at boot time using the kernel option `video=vfb:'.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called vfb.
      If unsure, say N.
