Default SuSE 8.2 notes/question

We've just done a new install of SuSE 8.2, with all updates as of Sep 2003. This includes gcc 3.3. NVIDIA driver 1.0-4496 has been successfully installed.

In case it helps someone: The IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH - per the drivers 'README' file, was absolutely required in this case. Also, in any configuration which tries AGPART first, the system freezes. IE, if we use Option "NvAGP" "2" or Option "NvAGP" "3".

On the other hand, Option "NvAGP" "1", selecting NVIDIA internal AGP support, WORKS, but always leaves AGP disabled. IE, '# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status' reports 'Disabled'.

We still get about 1200 FPS from glxgears, though, so shouldn't be too unhappy...

BUT, as this is an AGP card, could we get better performance somehow forcing AGP? Is this something worth spending more time on? Does anyone have any suggestions?

Card is a GeForce 4200 (AGP)
