  1.  Supported Hardware

  o  ATI Rage 128 based cards

  2.  Features

  o  Full support (including hardware accelerated 2D drawing) for 8, 15,
     16, 24 bit pixel depths.

  o  Hardware cursor support to reduce sprite flicker.

  o  Support for high resolution video modes up to 1800x1440 @ 70Hz.

  o  Support for doublescan video modes (e.g., 320x200 and 320x240).

  o  Support for gamma correction at all pixel depths.

  o  Fully programmable clock supported.

  o  Robust text mode restore for VT switching.

  3.  Technical Notes

  o  None

  4.  Reported Working Video Cards

  o  Rage Fury AGP 32MB

  o  XPERT 128 AGP 16MB

  o  XPERT 99 AGP 8MB

  5.  Configuration

  The driver auto-detects all device information necessary to initialize
  the card. The only lines you need in the "Device" section of your
  xorg.conf file are:

         Section "Device"
             Identifier "Rage 128"
             Driver     "r128"

  or let xorgconfig do this for you.

  However, if you have problems with auto-detection, you can specify:

  o  VideoRam - in kilobytes

  o  MemBase - physical address of the linear framebuffer

  o  IOBase - physical address of the memory mapped IO registers


  6.  Driver Options

  o  "hw_cursor" - request hardware cursor (default)

  o  "sw_cursor" - software cursor only

  o  "no_accel" - software rendering only

  o  "dac_8_bit" - use color weight 888 in 8 bpp mode (default)

  o  "dac_6_bit" - use color weight 666 in 8 bpp mode (VGA emulation)

  7.  Known Limitations

  o  None
