       sisusb - SiS USB video driver

       Section "Device"
	 Identifier "devname"
	 Driver "sisusb"

       sisusb  is  an  Xorg  driver for SiS (Silicon Integrated Systems) video
       chips that are connected via a Net2280-based USB dongle. The driver  is
       not  accelerated,  but provides support for colordepths of 8, 16 and 24
       bpp as well as Render and other extensions.

       The sisusb driver supports USB  video  cards  based  on	the  following


       The  SiS315E/PRO features two CRT controllers. However, in its USB ver‐
       sion, only the first output, referred to as "CRT1", is being used.

       Please refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details  and  to
       sis(4)  for  more information. This manpage only covers a subset of the
       supported options.

       Detailed information on	all  supported	options	 can  be  obtained  at

       Please  note  that  this	 driver requires a Linux kernel driver as well
       which is included in Linux 2.6.12 and later, as well  as	 available  at
       the aforementioned website.

       The following driver Options are supported:

       Option "HWCursor" "boolean"
	      Enable  or disable the hardware cursor. It is not recommended to
	      disable the hardware cursor as this will increase the amount  of
	      data transferred over the USB. Default: HWCursor is on.

       Option "SWCursor" "boolean"
	      The  opposite of HWCursor. This enables or disables the software
	      cursor. This sort of cursor is slower because the	 pointer  must
	      be  painted into the graphics display. This increases the amount
	      of data transferred over the USB significantly. Default:	SWCur‐
	      sor is off.

       Option "CRT1Gamma" "boolean"
	      Enable  or  disable gamma correction.  Default: Gamma correction
	      is on.

       Option "DisconnectTimeout" "integer"
	      This option determines how the driver will react to a disconnec‐
	      tion  of	the  USB  device.  If  the integer supplied is -1, the
	      driver will abort the X server immediately  upon	disconnection.
	      If  the value given is 0, the driver will probe for a re-connec‐
	      tion every 2 seconds and in case the  device  is	detected,  re-
	      establish	 the  display.	If  the	 value	is greater than 0, the
	      driver will do this re-probing within the given number  of  sec‐
	      onds  and	 abort	the  server  if	 it does not detect the device
	      within this time-out.  Default:  0  (probe  forever  for	device
