GENFB(4)                NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual               GENFB(4)

NAME
     genfb -- generic framebuffer console driver

SYNOPSIS
     genfb* at pci?
     genfb* at sbus?
     wsdisplay* at genfb?

DESCRIPTION
     The genfb driver provides support for generic framebuffers that have no
     native driver.  All it needs are some parameters to describe the frame-
     buffer and an address.

   PCI
     When attaching to a pci(4) bus the driver is configured via device prop-
     erties:

     width (uint32)
                   Width in pixels.

     height (uint32)
                   Height in pixels.

     stride (uint32)
                   Line size in bytes.

     depth (uint32)
                   Bits per pixel.

     is_console (bool)
                   If true, genfb will try to become the system console.

     address (uint32)
                   Bus address of the framebuffer.

   SBus
     When attaching to sbus(4) all those parameters are retrieved from the
     firmware.

BUGS
     There is no way to change the color map even when the firmware supports
     it.  The pci(4) bus frontend has only been tested on macppc, i386, and
     amd64 and requires machine dependent code to pass the properties men-
     tioned above.  So far only macppc, i386, and amd64 provides them.
