How do you enable Fast Writes in the driver? I have it enabled in the BIOS but /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status shows that Fast Writes are disabled. Which kernel module option do I need?

modinfo NVdriver should give you an idea :)

options NVdriver NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1 NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1

man modules.conf may help you also.

OK, I'll try that.
