Default AMD64 - K8T800 agpgart WORKS with Nvidia!!!!!

After going through a lot of crap, i finally got my agpgart to work with my board and chip. I tried everything - compiling 2.6.0 and 2.4.23 - but nothing seemed to work. Until now!!!!

The trick???

1. Make sure that when you are compiling the kernel, that agpgart is a "MODULE" and the amd64-gart is compiled "INTO" the kernel. This can't be done in 2.6.0-Test11. Probably a lack of skill on my part, but it won't let you compile the amd64-gart into the kernel while agpgart is a module.

2. Add "NvAGP" "2" to XF86Config(-4) .......it's gotta be "2"

3. Add " pci1:0:0 " to the device section of the XF86Config as well.

4. You also want to add " /sbin/modprobe agpgart " to rc.modules.


Here is a bit of my "dmesg".............

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 941M
agpgart: Detected AMD On-CPU GART chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 128M @ 0xf0000000


AGP: Found AGPv3 capable device at 0:0:0
AGP: Found AGPv3 capable device at 1:0:0
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 1:0:0
AGP: Putting device into 4x mode


Still in "4x agp" mode....but still, it's a start!!!

Yeeeeeeeeeehhhhhaaaaaaaaa :-))))))))

I should mention that it's in 32bit mode and the the beta 4620 linux Nvidia driver.
