Description Donnie Berkholz 2006-01-04 16:26:48 UTC
05:26 < spyderous> is there some way to query arbitrary drivers for what config
                   options they take?
05:27 < ajax> spyderous: yes, technically
05:28 < ajax> we even do it.  X -configure will dump all the driver options it
              can find for the appropriate video driver
05:28 < spyderous> i don't know how it would make sense but i'd like to be able
                   to say X -driver sisusb -dumpoptions
05:28 < ajax> not an easy way to get that list outside the server though
05:29 < ajax> eh, i can probably give you that in a 15-minute hack with a
              little work
05:29 < ajax> mind filing a bug about it to remind me?
05:30 < spyderous> i would love to

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

'X -showopts' exists now.
