All of the above are supported in both 256 color, and some are supported in
mono and 16 color modes, and some are supported an higher color depths.

Refer to the chipset-specific README files (currently for TGA, Matrox, Mach32,
Mach64, NVidia, Oak, P9000, S3 (except ViRGE), S3 ViRGE, SiS, Video7, Western
Digital, Tseng (W32), Tseng (all), AGX/XGA, ARK, ATI (SVGA server), Chips and
Technologies, Cirrus, Trident) for more information about using those chipsets.

The monochrome server also supports generic VGA cards, using 64k of video mem-
ory in a single bank, the Hercules monochrome card, the Hyundai HGC1280, Sigma
LaserView, Visa and Apollo monochrome cards.

The VGA16 server supports memory banking with the ET4000, Trident, ATI, NCR,
OAK and Cirrus 6420 chipsets allowing virtual display sizes up to about
1600x1200 (with 1MB of video memory).  For other chipsets the display size is
limited to approximately 800x600.

Note: The Diamond SpeedStar 24 (and possibly some SpeedStar+) boards are NOT

README for XFree86[tm] 3.3

supported, even though they use the ET4000.

The Weitek 9100 and 9130 chipsets are not supported (these are used on the Dia-
mond Viper Pro and Viper SE boards).  The chips used on the FireGL boards are
not currently supported.  Most other Diamond boards will work with this release
of XFree86. Diamond is actively supporting The XFree86 Project, Inc.

4.  Where to get more information

Additional documentation is available in the XFree86(1), XF86Config(4/5),
XF86_SVGA(1), XF86_Mono(1), XF86_VGA16(1), XF86_Accel(1), XF86Setup(1) and
xvidtune(1) manual pages.  In addition, several README files and tutorial docu-
ments are provided.  These are available in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc in the
binary distributions, and in  xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/doc in the source

The files QuickStart.doc and README.Config should be consulted for information
on how to set up the XFree86 servers.  All supplied documents, manual pages,
and the XFree86 FAQ <URL:http://www.XFree86.org/FAQ> should be read before con-
tacting the XFree86 team for assistance.

Documentation on SVGA driver development can be found in the directory
/usr/X11R6/lib/Server/VGADriverDoc in the binary distribution, and in the
directory xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/VGADriverDoc in the source distribu-

If you are totally at a loss, you can contact the XFree86 Support Team at
<XFree86@XFree86.Org>.	Before doing so, please make sure that you are using
the latest release of XFree86.	Check the versions listed on

There is a Usenet news group comp.windows.x.i386unix that contains mostly dis-
cussions about XFree86 and related topics. Many questions can be answered

5.  Thanks

The XFree86 Project wants to express a special thanks to S.u.S.E. GmbH, Fürth,
Germany, for hiring our Core Team member and Vice President Dirk Hohndel as an
employee and allowing him to work more or less full time on XFree86 for the
past 5 months. Without this significant investment from S.u.S.E. into XFree86
the 3.3 release would not have been possible in this form and at this time, and
the work on our 4.0 branch wouldn't be where it is today.

Ongoing development planning and support is coordinated by the XFree86 Core

8.  The XFree86 Project, Inc.

The XFree86 Project, Inc, was founded to accomplish two major goals:

  1.  To provide a vehicle by which XFree86 can be represented in X Consortium,
      Inc, the organization responsible for the design, development, and
      release of The X Window System.

  2.  To provide some basic funding for acquisition of facilities for ongoing
      XFree86 development, largely to consist of new video hardware and basic
      computing facilities.

The first of these was the primary motivation.	We have held discussions with
the X Consortium on and off for many months, attempting to find an avenue by
which our loosely-organized free software project could be given a voice within
the X Consortium.  The bylaws of the Consortium would not recognize such an
organization.  After an initial investigation about funding, we decided to form
our own corporation to provide the avenue we needed to meet the requirements of
the X Consortium bylaws.

By doing this, we were able to be involved in the beta-test interval for X11R6,
and have contributed the majority of XFree86 to the X11R6 and X11R6.1 core
release.  The version of XFree86 in the initial X11R6 core is 3.0.  The version
of XFree86 in the current X11R6.3 release is 3.2.

An additional benefit of this incorporation is that The XFree86 Project, Inc
has obtained outside financial support for our work.  This will hopefully give
us the freedom to be more pro-active in obtaining new video hardware, and
enable us to release better products more quickly, as we will be able to go and
get what we need, and get it into the hands of the people who can do the work.

The current Board of Directors and Officers of the The XFree86 Project, Inc,

Email to <BOD@XFree86.org> reaches the board of directors.

Our bylaws have been crafted in such a way to ensure that XFree86 is and always
will be a free software project.  There is no personal financial benefit to any
member of the Core Team or any other XFree86 participant.  All assets of the
corporation remain with the corporation, and, in the event of the dissolution
of the corporation, all assets will be turned over to the X Consortium, Inc.
It is hoped that by doing this, our corporation will be merely a formalization
of what we have been doing in the past, rather than something entirely new.

As of March 1997, The XFree86 Project has revised its source/binary access and
release policy.  The main points of the new policy are:

   o There will be no more time-limited public binary-only beta releases.
     Instead we plan to increase the frequency of full public releases to about
     four releases per year.

   o The source access/use is divided into three categories:

	o End users.  End users have access to only the source of full public
	  releases.  The main reason for this restriction is that our develop-
	  ment code often contains code from other sources which cannot be
	  released to the public immediately.

	o Active developers (members of the XFree86 ``developer team'').
	  Active developers must formally become non-voting members of the
	  XFree86 Project, and have full access to our internal development
	  source.  They are permitted to make time-limited binaries (in coordi-
	  nation with the Core Team) of the servers they are actively working
	  on available to external testers for specific testing.

	o Commercial members.  Commercial members are non-voting members of The
	  XFree86 Project who donate US$5000/year to the Project.  Addition-
	  ally, companies who contribute significantly to the development
	  effort of XFree86 can be awarded commercial membership by the Core
	  Team on a yearly bases.  Commercial members can use the internal
	  XFree86 development source for derived binary-only products providing
	  that they take full responsibility for supporting the product, and

README for XFree86[tm] 3.3

	  don't call it ``XFree86'' (although the derivation of the product
	  must be acknowledged in any accompanying documentation).  Binary
	  packages for the OSs we support which are simply compiled from our
	  internal source without significant added value are explicitly NOT

Here is a list of the organizations and individuals who have provided sponsor-
ship to The XFree86 Project, Inc, either by financial contribution or by the
donation of equipment and resources.  The XFree86 Project, Inc gratefully
acknowledges these contributions, and hopes that we can do justice to them by
continuing to release high-quality free software for the betterment of the
Internet community as a whole.

   o UUNET Communications Services, Inc. <URL:http://www.uu.net/>

UUNET Communications Services, Inc, deserves special mention.  This organiza-
