so... i have a problem (of course ) : my agp is disabled My card is a GeForce3 Ti200 (128M) and my motherboard, an ABIT KT7A (chipset KT133). My dristribution is a Debian and my XFree version is 4.2.1.
I have disabled (no module, no static) agpgart in my kernel. My module configuration:
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
alias char-major-195 nvidia
(i tried to add :
options nvidia NVreg_ReqAGPRate=2
options nvidia NVreg_EnableVia4x=1
but no effect)
Extract from my XF86Config-4:
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "NvAgp" "1"
Option "RenderAccel" "true"
Option "PageFlip" "true"
:~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge: Via Apollo Pro KT133
Fast Writes: Supported
AGP Rates: 4x 2x 1x
~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes: Not Supported
SBA: Not Supported
AGP Rates: 4x 2x 1x
~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA Linux x86 nvidia.o Kernel Module 1.0-4191 Mon Dec 9 11:49:01 PST 2002
GCC version: version gcc 3.2.2 20021212 (Debian prerelease)
~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: GeForce3 Ti 200
Video BIOS: 03.20.00.26.00
Card Type: AGP
What i missed ? Any suggestions ?

This problem sounds very similar to mine (still unresolved), which nvidia drivers are you running?

I just found this, as well: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...s+disabled+agp
If you can't be bothered reading it: add try_unsupported as an option to the agpgart driver.

agp_try_unsupported only works with the agpgart driver.
I'm not positive whether the nvagp driver contains support for the KTxxx series chipsets, though. I know some have had trouble with the KT400, and I think some others have had trouble with the KT333 (which is just a KT266 with a faster memory bus), but I could be wrong on that. I have a KT333, and it works just fine with agpgart (kernel 2.4.19 with the -preempt patchset).
Why did you disable agpgart? Does enabling it (and recompiling the kernel, obviously -- if you make it a module, you may have to do something like post-install nvidia /sbin/modprobe -k agpgart and pre-remove nvidia /sbin/modprobe -r agpgart in your modules.conf to get the module to load when it's needed, though) help?
