Default Re: Freeze on redraw

Odd.. I cannot seem to use any of the sysctls to set the AGP rate..

hw.nvidia.agp.card.rates ; read-only
hw.nvidia.agp.status.rate ; read-only

hw.nvidia.registry.rate ; oid doesn't exist?!?
None of the hw.nvidia.registry.* oid's mentioned in the README exists btw.

So I used the BIOS to set the AGP rate to 1x/2x instead of 4x.
Installed a kernel without device agp. Rebuild nvidia-driver WITHOUT_FREEBSD_AGP. Checked kldstat, nvidia.ko is there, no agp.ko

After starting X:
dice@molly:~>sysctl hw.nvidia
hw.nvidia.agp.card.rates: 4x 2x 1x
hw.nvidia.agp.card.fw: supported
hw.nvidia.agp.card.sba: supported
hw.nvidia.agp.card.registers: 0x1f000217:0x0f000102
hw.nvidia.agp.status.status: enabled
hw.nvidia.agp.status.driver: nvidia
hw.nvidia.agp.status.rate: 2x
hw.nvidia.agp.status.fw: disabled
hw.nvidia.agp.status.sba: disabled
hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA FreeBSD x86 Kernel Module 1.0-8774 Tue Aug 1 22:04:23 PDT 2006
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableVia4x: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableALiAGP: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.NvAGP: 1
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPSBA: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPFW: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.SoftEDIDs: 1
hw.nvidia.registry.Mobile: 4294967295
hw.nvidia.registry.ResmanDebugLevel: 4294967295
hw.nvidia.registry.FlatPanelMode: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.DevicesConnected: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.VideoEnhancement: 0
hw.nvidia.registry.RmLogonRC: 1
hw.nvidia.registry.DetectPrimaryVga: 1 GeForce FX 5200 17 AGP

Setting AGP to 2x does seem to help.. So far I couldn't reproduce the problem

Perhaps later I'll try the beta driver to see if it can handle the errors better at 4xAGP.
Right now I'm happy
