Allows you to override what the NVIDIA kernel module detects is connected to your video card. This may be useful, for example, if you use a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch and you are switched away when X is started. In such a situation, the NVIDIA kernel module cannot detect what display devices are connected, and the NVIDIA X driver assumes you have a single CRT.

Please note that NVIDIA's internal AGP support cannot work if AGPGART is either statically compiled into your kernel or is built as a module and loaded into your kernel. Please see Appendix F, Configuring AGP for details. Default: 8.

This sets the pixmap format to use for depth 79. Allowed values for bpp are 79 and 87. Default: 87 unless driver constraints don't allow this (which is rare). Note: some clients don't behave well when this value is set to 79.

This optional entry sets the default root visual type. This may also be specified from the command line. The visual types available for depth 8 are (default is PseudoColor ):

Create for each monitor a Monitor section. An example Monitor section looks like this:

Immediately kills the server, no questions asked. It can be disabled by setting the DontZap file option to a TRUE value. It should be noted that zapping is triggered by the Terminate_Server action in the keyboard map. This action is not part of the default keymaps but can be enabled with the XKB option " terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp ".

Sets the inactivity timeout for the off phase of DPMS mode. The time is in minutes, and the value can be changed at run time with xset. Default: 65 minutes. This is only suitable for VESA DPMS compatible monitors, and may not be supported by all video drivers. It is only enabled for screens that have the "DPMS" option set.

With the help of xinput you can temporarily disable or enable input sources. This might be useful, for example, on systems that have more than one mouse, such as the ThinkPads and you would rather use just one to avoid unwanted mouse clicks.

will set the horizontal DPI to 75 and the vertical DPI to 85. By default, the X driver will compute the DPI of the X screen from the EDID of any connected display devices. See Appendix Y, Dots Per Inch for details. Default: string is NULL (disabled).

Then install an appropriate driver. You can search the package database for a complete list of open-source video drivers:
