Problem with the Accelerated Graphics Port & Linux
Hi guys,
I’m new in the Linux world, I installed Linux redhat 9 (kernel 2.4.20-8) in dual boot on my PC (Intel Pentium 4, 2GHz, nVidia GeForce 4 MX 440, AGP 4x). All run ok, but I think that the Accelerated Graphics Port doesn’t run under linux.
Could anyone can tell me what I have to do in order to run my graphics accelerator properly?
Thank you for you help,

I cant remember if its the same in 2.4 kernels...
but try this

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status

Type the dmesg command into a terminal and sift through the output for any lines which have the word 'agpgart' in them. Post those lines.

dmesg checked
Hi TheOneKEA,
I checked in the “dmesg” log file but there is not “AGPgart” lines.
So I was wondering if may be I have to download and install nVidia drivers from the nVidia site.
What do you suggest?
Thanks for your help.

Well, if there aren't any lines like this:

Linux agpgart interface v0.100 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected an Intel i845 Chipset.
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xec000000

then agpgart support is missing from your kernel. You can try the nvidia driver's internal NvAGP or you can recompile your kernel to add agpgart support.
