Default Re: AGP is disabled

In kernel 2.6.5 and newer I have had much more success with agpgart than with the nvidia agp driver. The best plan is to build agpgart as a module for the kernel, then experiment with both. I see much better results when I have agpgart and intel_agp loaded before starting X (which loads the 'nvidia' kernel module). Oddly, the 'agp disabled' problem shows up if I load the nvidia kernel module before starting x, or if I request nvagp via the X config option NvAGP.

This is a recent change for my system... it definitely has to do with the kernel version.
