Question Fedora core 2 - rivafb or AGPGART?

Hi

I've been having some real problems getting the 6111 drivers working with core 2. I did get a warning about having rivafb module at install time. I've tried to get round this by compiling my own kernel - though I'm not sure I'm managed to exclude the right things here (some hints on exactly what not to include would be good). It made no difference anyway.

Also I'm getting this error at boot:

agpgart: Detected an Intel i815 Chipset, but could not find the secondary device.

and later:

agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:01:00.0 into 4x mode
spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7. (I've no idea if this is related).

So, I've also tried compiling without AGPGART - things are blurring together a bit here, but I'm pretty sure that things stop working when I do this.....

Anyway - generally speaking my 3D software (houdini) is really slow, where it hasn't been on previous linux/nvidia installs. My machine is a toshiba laptop with a Geforce 440 Go (32mb) - not fast by todays standards, but it should definitely be faster than it is right now.

What is going wrong for me, is it my AGP or some driver/framebuffer clash. My log file seems happy with both. I'd really appreciate any pointers on how I might procede here???!!

Sorry for the long attachment and thanks for any help!

Cheers and hhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllppppppppppp pppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Re: Fedora core 2 - rivafb or AGPGART?

Ahh - just looking at dmesg ouput again. I notice the following AGP related outputs - does this mean two cards are being found? Would that be related to having the rivafb driver installed too?

Rivafb and the Nvidia driver are incompatible and this is no doubt causing any problems you are having. Remove it and if you are still having problems try reinstalling the Nvidia driver. You can check to see if the rivafb module is loaded by doing a "/sbin/lsmod" in a terminal.

Hi,
this:
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:01:00.0 into 4x mode
is super, exactly what you want.

spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
can be ignored. An spurious interrupt occured and was dealt with. Sometimes a sign for flaky hardware.

is also cool. Your card and port got initialized, and you did it two times (reloaded a module? restarted X?)

So, your modules are looking ok.

Default Re: Fedora core 2 - rivafb or AGPGART?

I understand you can remove the rivafb lkm for the online session with a 'modprobe -r rivafb' and then a 'modprobe nvidia' to install the nvidia driver. Unfortunately, with this method, it goes away whenever you reboot. I'm unsure how to go about making the rivafb module go away on a permenent basis (ie, survive a reboot)

you recompile your kernel without rivafb to get rid of it perminantly.
