I have a gf5500 and an Asus k8v-x se (k8t800pro chipset). I cannot get the system to use agp acceleration. If I run the system with the agpgart and nvidia modules, everything runs but cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status gives disabled as the status.
If I attempt to run with agpgart, amd64_agp and nvidia, I get a blank screen and the console locks. ssh'ing in shows everything is running, in fact:
# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
AGP Rate: 8x
Fast Writes: Disabled
I have been fighting this problem for a couple of months now with no success, I've tried turning off acpi, apic vesa_tng all to no avail. I've tried different kernel versions and nvidia driver versions, diffenent driver options all to no avail.
Help with this would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks
I've attached the bug report output
