agp not intialising for > 4G memory
 
Hi

I am hoping someone can shed some light on my situtation.

My problem lies that when I put more ram into my system 4G-->8G, agp fails to intialise

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Disabled

dmesg | grep NV
NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86_64 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-6111 Tue Jul 27
07:58:17 PDT 2004
NVRM: AGPGART: unable to set MTRR write-combining
NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!
NVRM: AGPGART: unable to set MTRR write-combining
NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!

NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!
NVRM: AGPGART: unable to set MTRR write-combining
NVRM: AGPGART: unable to set MTRR write-combining

I need to use NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-611 as my software is compatible with the latest. Also running 2.4.21-20.ELsmp.

Is this a known issue? I have been googling for a while but can not seem to find any real clue so any help would be appriciated.

Cheers

Since your software is compatible with the latest then why not use that? :)

Have you tried with a 2.6.x kernel instead? I would expect the 2.6.x kernels to be better at using large amounts of memory and possible also better support for the x86_64 flavor. Also the WHOLE dmesg output would be more helpfull.

Please run the `nvidia-bug-report.sh` script after starting X and attach the generated log file.

Just to close this out.

I meant. the software wasnt compatible with the latest nvidia driver. Bad proof reading.

However since the first post I have been told by the manufatcuer that their software is now compatible with the latest nvidia driver: 7167.

And the agp issue with more than 4G of memory is no longer present.

thanks
