No it is for the whole stuff. I use to boot in mode 3 (mode console, the reason of startx). And it takes for less than 15 seconds to see the logo. Is it ok ?
Another thing, I have the following messages using dmesg:
0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5336 Wed Jan 14 18:29:26 PST 2004
Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: Detected Intel(R) 855PM chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 128M @ 0xe0000000
What does mean the last line 128M ? I have 64M of shared memory. Is it ok ? I only have 512MB of RAM. Would some RAM be wasted ?
