No matter what I do, cannot use NVidia AGP driver. Have followed instructions for disabling AGP device in kernel, but kernel module agp.ko is loaded as soon as nvidia.ko is loaded.

When starting X I get:

NVRM: AGP cannot be enabled on this combination of the AMD CPU and OS kernel
NVRM: kernel upgrade recommended.

Am I doing something stupid or is something not supported by the driver?


I have the exact same issue, no matter what I do on the x86 driver in freebsd 5.4, the driver works fine but it registers as a PCI card and the performance is 30% worse than it probably should be and much worse with lots of graphics memory usage.

I've discussed it in the freebsdforums and nobody has had any answer; however, it must have something to do with socket 939 and agp.
