Default Allocating video memory in NVdia cards


I have NVDIA Quadro FX 1000 graphics card installed in my machine (with red hat linux (version 2.4.20-8). I wanted to use the AGP or the Video Memory to expedite my rendering. So, I called the glXAllocateMemoryNV function after including the header files glx.h and gl.h (which have these function definitions).

The program compiled perfectly but would not allocate memory (returned a null pointer).

The call which i made was:

if(glXAllocateMemory(sizeof(int),0.1,0.1,0.75)==NU LL)
cout<<"no memory allocated!!";

This would always go inside the if statement.

I am attaching the driver information of the card (all the files in /proc/driver/nvidia directory)
