8x card stuck in 4x mode?
 
I'm unsure if I'm using agp 4x or agp 8x.

Code:

bash-3.1$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes:    Supported
SBA:            Supported
AGP Rates:      8x 4x
Registers:      0xff000e1b:0x1f004312
bash-3.1$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge:    PCI device 10de:00d1 (nVidia Corporation)
Fast Writes:    Supported
SBA:            Supported
AGP Rates:      8x 4x
Registers:      0x1f00421b:0x00000312
bash-3.1$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status:          Enabled
Driver:          AGPGART
AGP Rate:        8x
Fast Writes:    Enabled
SBA:            Enabled

However, if i check my dmesg i get

Code:

AGP: Found AGPv3 capable device at 0:0:0
AGP: Found AGPv3 capable device at 2:0:0
AGP: Enough AGPv3 devices found, setting up...
AGP: Setting up AGPv3 capable device at 0:0:0
AGP: Putting device into 4x mode
AGP: Setting up AGPv3 capable device at 2:0:0
AGP: Putting device into 4x mode

Using slackware 11, 2.4.33 kernel, 1.0-9755 drivers, 6800GS, nforce3 board

Sorry netllama, I thought I had provided enough relevant information to get a clear answer. Here is the log.
So can you tell me if I am running in agp 4x or agp 8x? And if I am running in agp 4x can you point me in the right direction to force it to agp 8x?

From your bug report, the NVIDIA driver is detecting an 8x AGP rate, yet your AGP driver is putting the device into 4x:
AGP: Putting device into 4x mode

This looks like it might be an AGP driver bug, or perhaps the AGP driver is intentionally setting 4x to workaround some other problem. I'd suggest verifying that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS and also to test with a much more recent kernel.

thanks,
Lonni

I think agpgart just has a typo when reporting to dmesg. I tried the NvAGP driver and i still get
Code:

bash-3.1$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status:          Enabled
Driver:          NVIDIA
AGP Rate:        8x
Fast Writes:    Enabled
SBA:            Enabled
bash-3.1$

Yes, i should try another kernel but I don't want to compile one if I don't have to.

Thanks for the help
