Re: Go5200 / Compaq Presario
I had the same problem, and fortunately I found a way to solve it.
the problem isn't in the driver but in SAX. After you run the nvidia installer manually edit the configuration file of X11 (/etc/X11/XF86Config).
Modify the section "device" in this way
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
then check that in the /etc/modules.conf file, there is the line
alias char-major-195 nvidia
I also added this line to force SBA and fast write
options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
reboot and it should work
