The Trident driver has undergone some slight work for XFree86 3.3.3. Because of this work, all of the Trident SVGA chipsets, except the very first one, are supported by both the color and monochrome servers.

Additionally the 9100B is treated as a Trident 8900CL. Therefore it is equivalent to putting `
Chipset "tvga8900cl"' or `
Chipset "tvga9000"' in the
XF86Configfile. Also, note that the 9000i, 9100B have not been tested with the server, but should work in this way according to the chipset documentation.
"accel"option (see below).
Turn off linear mapping
Force linear mapping. Use this if you have a non-PCI card and require 16bpp support. Note: ISA cards can only access up to 16MB of memory, so be sure you have less than this or it could cause a system hang.
This option may be used to specify the start address of the linear frame buffer. By default for VLBus/EISA cards it is at 60MB. For the 8900CL/D, it is at 15MB.
This option turns off Memory Mapped IO support. MMIO is enabled by default when acceleration is enabled. Acceleration doesn't work well when MMIO is disabled.
Turn on PCI burst read mode.
Turn on PCI burst write mode.
Turn on PCI burst (read and write)
Turn off PCI burst (read and write)
NOTE: PCI burst modes are now OFF by default for TGUI9440 cards because it often upsets its Graphics Accelerator. It can be turned it back on as may improve performance. PCI burst modes are ON by default for all other PCI/AGP cards.
Turn on programmable clocks. This is the default for TGUIs.
Turn off programmable clock. Use fixed VGA clocks only. Useful for fixed frequency monitors - usually used for VGA monitors - not SVGA.
Turn off XAA acceleration.
Enable acceleration for the Cyber9388/9397.
Disable color expansion.
Disable LCD stretching on Cyber 938x based chips.
Enable LCD centering on Cyber 938x based chips.
Enable Shadow registers, might be needed for some Cyber chipsets. (laptop machines)
Pushes the Memory Clock from its default value to 66MHz. Increases graphics speed dramatically, but use entirely at your own risk, as it may damage the video card. If snow appears, disable. Only tested on the 9440.
The original Trident chipset, 8800BR, cannot be supported as an SVGA chipset by either the color or monochrome servers. The chip is supported, however, by the ``generic'' driver for the monochrome server.
