Default Re: NvAGP/AGPGART on PCIe systems

I don't have a laptop, it's a machine with a GeForce8800 on a MSI mainboard with a nForce 5 or 6 (can't check this right now) chipset. I've already found your thread and read most of it (thx for sharing your experience btw).

Anyway, that's not my point. What I'd like to know is if the "NvAGP" setting has any impact on a PCIe system and why the nvidia-driver depends on the agpgart-module on such a system.

There are many howtos out there that all describe the same procedure (probably because they copy each other), whether it's a AGP or PCIe system, and I suspect that the almighty "enable NvAGP" advice is ************ if you're on a PCIe system. But I cannot prove that, so I've decided to post this thread and maybe get a clear answer. If at least some of the howtos would be corrected (primarily the "big ones" from ubuntu & co) there would be less people experiencing strange problems and asking the same question again and again...
