Please refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details. This section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.
The driver auto-detects the chipset type and the amount of video memory present for all chips.
The following driver Options are supported for pre-G80 hardware:
Option 34HWCursor34 34boolean34 Enable or disable the HW cursor. Default: on. Option 34NoAccel34 34boolean34 Disable or enable acceleration. Default: acceleration is enabled. Option 34UseFBDev34 34boolean34 Enable or disable use of an OS-specific fb interface (and is not supported on all OSs). See fbdevhw(4x) for further information. Default: off. Option 34CrtcNumber34 34integer34 Many graphics cards with NVIDIA chips have two video outputs. The driver attempts to autodetect which one the monitor is connected to. In the case that autodetection picks the wrong one, this option may be used to force usage of a particular output. The options are "0" or "1". Default: autodetected. Option 34Dualhead34 34boolean34 Enables simple VBE-based dual head mode. This sets the same resolution on both outputs and lays them out side-by-side. The screens will be panned together as one big metamode if the virtual desktop is larger than both screens combined. Option 34FlatPanel34 34boolean34 The driver usually can autodetect the presence of a digital flat panel. In the case that this fails, this option can be used to force the driver to treat the attached device as a digital flat panel. With this driver, a digital flat panel will work only if it was POSTed by the BIOS, that is, the computer must have booted to the panel. If you have a dual head card you may also need to set the option CrtcNumber described above. Default: autodetected. Option 34FPDither34 34boolean34 Many digital flat panels (particularly ones on laptops) have only 6 bits per component color resolution. This option tells the driver to dither from 8 bits per component to 6 before the flat panel truncates it. Default: off. Option 34FPScale34 34boolean34 Supported only on GeForce4 and newer chips, this option tells to the driver to scale lower resolutions up to the flat panels native resolution. Default: on. Option 34Rotate34 34CW34
Option 34Rotate34 34CCW34
Rotate the display clockwise or counterclockwise. This mode is unaccelerated. Default: no rotation.
Note: The Resize and Rotate extension will be disabled if the Rotate "CW" or Rotate "CCW" options are used.
Option 34Rotate34 34RandR34 Enable rotation of the screen using the Resize and Rotate extension. This mode is unaccelerated. Default: no rotation support. Option 34ShadowFB34 34boolean34 Enable or disable use of the shadow framebuffer layer. Default: off. The following driver Options are available for G80 and higher: Option 34HWCursor34 34boolean34 Enable or disable the hardware cursor. Default: on. Option 34NoAccel34 34boolean34 Disable or enable acceleration. Default: acceleration is enabled. Option 34AccelMethod34 34string34 Choose acceleration architecture, either 34XAA34 or 34EXA34. XAA is the old but stable architecture. EXA is newer and supports resizing the desktop larger than it started out with RandR 1.2. If you choose to use EXA, you might also consider setting Option 34MigrationHeuristic34 34greedy34 to improve performance. Default: XAA. Option 34FPDither34 34boolean34 Enable or disable flat panel dithering by default. Dithering can also be enabled or disabled using the RandR 1.2 34dither34 output property. Default: off. Option 34AllowDualLinkModes34 34boolean34 Allow validation of dual-link DVI modes. Not all GPUs are configured at boot time to be able to handle dual-link modes, so they are disabled by default. The following RandR 1.2 properties are available for flat panels on G80 and higher GPUs: dither Enable or disable flat panel dithering. Valid values: 0 (off), 1 (on). scale Control how the image is scaled to fit the flat panel. Note that some flat panels perform their own scaling, overriding this option. 34off34 is not valid for laptop flat panels (LVDS). Valid values: 34off34, 34aspect34, 34fill34, and 34center34. Default: 34aspect34.
