LIGHT(4)            NetBSD/sgimips Kernel Interfaces Manual           LIGHT(4)

NAME
     light -- SGI Light/Entry/Starter (LG1/LG2) graphics controller

SYNOPSIS
     light* at gio? slot ?
     wsdisplay* at light? console ?

DESCRIPTION
     The light driver supports the SGI Light series of graphics controllers,
     also known as Entry or Starter graphics and designated LG1 or LG2.  These
     controllers have a fixed 1024x768 resolution with 8-bit colour depth.
     Unlike most SGI offerings, both 13w3 and VGA video cables are supported.
     light is found in Indigo and Crimson machines.

SEE ALSO
     sgimips/gio(4), sgimips/grtwo(4), sgimips/newport(4), wscons(4)

HISTORY
     The light driver first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     Stephen M. Rumble wrote this driver.

BUGS
     Much is unknown about the REX chipset.  Therefore, the driver relies on
     the PROM to properly initialise the graphics.

     This driver will not run without modification on Crimson machines.
