Default NV FX1100 Card and LINUX driver

Good morning,
I have an A-pro intellistation (opteron ) with an NVidia FX 1100 card.
Model: Quadro FX 1100
IRQ: 16
Video BIOS: 04.36.20.22.15
Card Type: AGP


I installed suse sles8 sp3 and the driver 1.0.5332 for amd64.
I can not install the latest version because the GLIBC of SLES8 is < than 2.3
I get a ww warning in XFree86.0.log:

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failed to verify AGP usage <===
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1280x960"
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture

the /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status is :
Status: Disabled

I think it could be a problem for the performances of the adapter.
I would like to know if there is a way to activat AGP with this adapter.

Many thanks in advance

The Disabled status indicates that AGP is not functioning, which would indeed severely reduce the performance of the adapter. Check to make sure that you are actually running the updated SP3 kernel. I know that the original SLES8 kernel had this problem. The other variable to check is the system BIOS of your workstation.

are you using nvagp? if so try to use the agpgart module. Suse enables it by default. On the other hand you can disable the agpgart module and enable the internal nvidia agp module. (check if agpgart is enabled with the command lsmod).

I believe the default value for nvagp is '1', which means try AGPGART first. That should work, if the kernel is really the SP3 kernel.

The default is NvAGP "3", but this setting reflects the behavior Jabberwocky describes; the output of dmesg (in this case, after starting the X server) typically has additional information on AGP initialization problems.
