still disabled...

i cant get agp work, neither with agpgart nor with nvagp! in the nvidia.readme is written that my via kt266 chipset is supported by nvagp, but the status of apg is always disabled.
i tried diffrent nvagp options in my XF86Config without any success.

mtrr and agpgart is compilied with my latest kernel, (2.4.22 from while agpgart is compiled as a module.

root@gentoo robin # cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status

root@gentoo robin # dmesg | grep agp
