Thumbs up

Hi,

'Debian-Instructions' don't differ much from 'generic Linux-Instructions':

* get the recent kernel sources: ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kerne...2.4.20.tar.bz2

* get the 2.4.21-rc2 patch: ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kerne...2.4.21-rc2.bz2

* get the nforce agpgart patch (see thread 'nforce2 AGPgart and linux')

* decompress the sources and apply the patches:
cd /usr/src
tar xfj linux-2.4.20.tar.bz2
cd linux
bzip2 -dc ../patch-2.4.21-rc2.bz2 | patch -p1
patch -p1 < ../nforce-agp.diff

* configure, compile and install the kernel
(I suggest not to use the debian-scripts)

* reboot

* get ATI's drivers for XFree86 4.1.x and compile the fglrx.o-Module
(don't use the patches posted in thread 'nforce2 AGPgart and linux' - they
are for the XFree86 4.3.x drivers ONLY):
+++ decompress +++
cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
sh make.sh
cd ..
sh make_install.sh
depmod -a

* load the agpgart.o-module and use modconf to insert it automatically next
time your Linux boots up

* configure your X-Server to use the ATI-driver (also called fglrx):
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

* start your X-Server

(* if you are using a A7N8X-Deluxe get the NVidia drivers for NVidia-NIC/sound)

good luck
