modesetting - video driver for framebuffer device
Section "Device" Identifier "devname" Driver "modesetting" BusID "pci:bus:dev:func" ... EndSection
modesetting is an Xorg driver for KMS devices. This driver supports TrueColor visuals at framebuffer depths of 15, 16, 24, and 30. RandR 1.2 is supported for multi-head configurations. Acceleration is available through glamor for devices supporting at least OpenGL ES 2.0 or OpenGL 2.1. If glamor is not enabled, a shadow framebuffer is configured based on the KMS drivers' preference (unless the framebuffer is 24 bits per pixel, in which case the shadow framebuffer is always used).
The modesetting driver supports all hardware where a KMS driver is available. modesetting uses the Linux DRM KMS ioctls and dumb object create/map.
Please refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details. This section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.
For this driver it is not required to specify modes in the screen section of the config file. The modesetting driver can pick up the currently used video mode from the kernel driver and will use it if there are no video modes configured.
For PCI boards you might have to add a BusID line to the Device section. See above for a sample line.
The following driver Options are supported:
Xorg(1), xorg.conf(5), Xserver(1), X(7)
