nope.... i tried NvAGP = 0
and yes it's in lsmod
wana know all that i've tried?
debain sid (original)
debian sid (new install)
2.4.23 (2.4.22 has issues with my IDE controller)
4??? (all of them)
basically take a permutation of all those and that's what i tried over a few days, without any luck.
i can't believe someone would say lsmod after my comments, but thanks for the attempt. atleast u tried unlike everyone else.
