    Default Increasing texture allocation sizes

    I am running a FreeBSD 7.2 system with xf86-video-ati-6.12.2 and mesa 7.4 on a ATI X850XT 256 MB card.

    The Xorg log messages show that the texture memory allocated is 119808kb

    ----------------------
    (II) RADEON(0): Will use 239616 kb for textures at offset 0x0143f000
    ----------------------

    Is there anyway I can tweak this value via xorg.conf or some other means?

    Default

    Option "FBTexPercent" "<value>" does it

    The other option is to use KMS which has a unified memory manager so there are no more static pre-allocated regions. It also allows you to use gart memory dynamically.

    KMS, though, is currently not available on FreeBSD.
