Default AGP 3.0/KT400 support?

Hey,

First up thankyou Andy for your dedication, you are a credit to Nvidia and the Nvidia Linux community.

Just a quick question: When will the official drivers support AGP 3.0 and the KT400 chipset?

The 2.4 kernel's AGPGART doesn't support it, and the 2.5 kernel's AGPGART (claiming to support AGP 3.0/KT400) so far causes the same crashes as the Nvidia drivers' AGP support.

I have a TI4800SE on a KT400 based board, and can't use the Nvidia drivers. The screen garbles and the machine locks hard right after initialising AGP 8X (the log proudly displays this right before it terminates). The motherboard's BIOS locks the AGP at 8X and forcing the AGP rate while insmod-ing doesn't help. Going by forums, it appears to be a common issue.

I was hoping the new 4349 release would address this problem, but it hasn't, so now it's time to let you know those of us with newer chipsets would love to use our Nvidia cards with the accelerated Nvidia drivers under Linux. I'm sure it says in the geek's bible somewhere that 'geeks cannot live on 2D alone'.

Oh, great installer btw

Martigen: we're looking into it. As a reminder for me, please send a detailed report to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.

Thanks!

Same problem with DFI AD77 Infinity Board (KT 400) and MSI G4MX440VTD (AGP 8x) 64MB.

Kernel: 2.4.21-pre6
Distri: Debian Woody 3.0
NVIDIA Driver: 1.0-4349

lspci -v and values in /proc/drivers/nvidia looks fine, but if i start X - system hangs complete (with any AGP rates >1 in NVReg_ReqAGPRate) - black screen. This happend also with the old NVIDIA drivers version 1.0-4191 and 1.0-3123.

After restart the x log file shows the switch to mode 1280x1024 as last entry.

I can use X only if i switch "NvAGP" "0"

No possibility in BIOS to switch the AGP Standard from 3.0 to 2.0 or change AGP rate (is fixed to 8x)

With my old 2MX400 (AGP 4x) the system runs completely fine.

MightyPenguin,

Alas, I need the 4XXX series for support of the TI4800SE.

Andy, will send that reminder!
