NAME

apm - interface with the APM subsystem  

SYNOPSIS

apm [ -VvmMsSdin ]  

DESCRIPTION

This command requires the Advanced Power Management subsystem. If run without arguments it reads /proc/apm and presents the output in a human-readable format. Given a -S or -s option it requests that the machine be put into the APM standby or the APM suspend state, respectively. For a brief description of these states, see apmd(8).  

OPTIONS

-V, --version
Print the version of the program and exit.
-v, --verbose
Also print version information for the APM subsystem. The APM subsystem consists of power-management hardware, firmware usually referred to as the APM BIOS and a driver in the operating system kernel.
-m, --minutes
Print the time remaining as a number of minutes. The default is to print the time remaining in "hours:minutes" format.
-M, --monitor
Continuously monitor and update the status information. Assumes that the standard output is a terminal.
-S, --standby
Request that the machine be put into the APM standby state.
-s, --suspend
Request that the machine be put into the APM suspend state.
-d, --debug
Print APM status information in a format more useful for debugging. Implies -v.

NAME

apm - Alliance ProMotion video driver  

SYNOPSIS

Section "Device"
  Identifier "devname"
  Driver "apm"
  ...
EndSection
 

DESCRIPTION

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.  

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

The apm driver supports PCI and ISA video cards on the following Alliance ProMotion chipsets
ProMotion 6420
ProMotion 6422
AT24
AT3D
AT25
 

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

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 enabled.
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 correct 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.
