Default Re: New AGP Mobo with ULi 1695 Chipset = No more gfx accelration :(

Sorry Lonni,

"it won't work using the native nvidia linux driver" means I can log in to my desktop but it is slow and there is no hardware acceleration.

phil@philsbox:~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Disabled

AGP initialization failed, please check the ouput
of the 'dmesg' command and/or your system log file
for additional information on this problem.



As far as I am aware this is because there is no support for the ULi 1695 North Bridge chipset built in to the 8178 x86 Linux graphics driver. I'm trying to use a 6800GT AGP.

Thanks,
Phil.
