Default Re: Nvidia 7XXX linux drivers and OpenGL applications

My tries today:

- flashed motherboard bios.
- compiled the driver with forced AGP down to 2 or 1.
The compiling results in a disabling of the driver, because it seems that my board doesnt support AGP Rates beyond 4. quite strange.

Finally, disabling AGP changed nothing on my problems, but glxgears runs longer than before... roundabout 35-40 seconds before the screen goes blank.

ugh:/# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes: Supported
SBA: Supported
AGP Rates: 8x 4x
Registers: 0xff000e1b:0x00000000

ugh:/# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Disabled

ugh:/# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
