+config KS0108
+ tristate "KS0108 LCD Controller"
+ depends on PARPORT_PC
+ default n
+ ---help---
+ If you have a LCD controlled by one or more KS0108
+ controllers, say Y. You will need also another more specific
+ driver for your LCD.
+
+ Depends on Parallel Port support. If you say Y at
+ parport, you will be able to compile this as a module (M)
+ and built-in as well (Y).
+
+ To compile this as a module, choose M here:
+ the module will be called ks0108.
+
+ If unsure, say N.
+
+config KS0108_PORT
+ hex "Parallel port where the LCD is connected"
+ depends on KS0108
+ default 0x378
+ ---help---
+ The address of the parallel port where the LCD is connected.
+
+ The first standard parallel port address is 0x378.
+ The second standard parallel port address is 0x278.
+ The third standard parallel port address is 0x3BC.
+
+ You can specify a different address if you need.
+
+ If you don't know what I'm talking about, load the parport module,
+ and execute "dmesg" or "cat /proc/ioports". You can see there how
+ many parallel ports are present and which address each one has.
+
+ Usually you only need to use 0x378.
+
+ If you compile this as a module, you can still override this
+ using the module parameters.
+
+config KS0108_DELAY
+ int "Delay between each control writing (microseconds)"
+ depends on KS0108
+ default "2"
+ ---help---
+ Amount of time the ks0108 should wait between each control write
+ to the parallel port.
+
+ If your driver seems to miss random writings, increment this.
+
+ If you don't know what I'm talking about, ignore it.
+
+ If you compile this as a module, you can still override this
+ value using the module parameters.
+
+config CFAG12864B
+ tristate "CFAG12864B LCD"
+ depends on X86
+ depends on FB
+ depends on KS0108
+ default n
+ ---help---
+ If you have a Crystalfontz 128x64 2-color LCD, cfag12864b Series,
+ say Y. You also need the ks0108 LCD Controller driver.
+
+ For help about how to wire your LCD to the parallel port,
+ check Documentation/auxdisplay/cfag12864b
+
+ Depends on the x86 arch and the framebuffer support.
+
+ The LCD framebuffer driver can be attached to a console.
+ It will work fine. However, you can't attach it to the fbdev driver
+ of the xorg server.
+
+ To compile this as a module, choose M here:
+ the modules will be called cfag12864b and cfag12864bfb.
+
+ If unsure, say N.
+
+config CFAG12864B_RATE
+ int "Refresh rate (hertz)"
+ depends on CFAG12864B
+ default "20"
+ ---help---
+ Refresh rate of the LCD.
+
+ As the LCD is not memory mapped, the driver has to make the work by
+ software. This means you should be careful setting this value higher.
+ If your CPUs are really slow or you feel the system is slowed down,
+ decrease the value.
+
+ Be careful modifying this value to a very high value:
+ You can freeze the computer, or the LCD maybe can't draw as fast as you
+ are requesting.
+
+ If you don't know what I'm talking about, ignore it.
+
+ If you compile this as a module, you can still override this
+ value using the module parameters.
