With all the problems people are reporting you would think nVidia may be able to offer some suggestions.

Here is my log file if it even matters anymore.
not the same problem at all!!!

some KT400 works! don't give up yet, only a minor percentage cannot get it to work, as long as the log's last line isn't "setting mode ...x..." you still can get it to work...

Well, as I've posted before, I've got the very same board (EliteGroup L7VTA), a GeForce3 (Gainward) and I got it to work with AGP x4 after some effort.
There are several things one has to check (I've got more details in one of my previous posts):

1. disable kernel-support for agpgart driver (then recompile and install it) and enable NVIDIA's AGP driver
2. insert the right entries into /etc/modules.conf
3. add "pci=noacpi" to your lilo.conf append string (and don't forget to rerun lilo afterwards)

Success !! all I had to do was disable APIC in the bios as well as the other KT400 workarounds. It also fixed my soundcard. I wonder why they bothered putting APIC on a single processor mobo ?

This is the workaround I used :

OK, I'll give some details on my successfull installation hoping that it will help. The following settings enable AGP 4x with the nvidia agp driver.

Hardware:
Gainward GeForce3 with VIA KT400

Linux kernel: 2.4.20, patched with newest acpi and bttv drivers. IMPORTANT: disable agpgart support in kernel (it only supports AGP x2 for KT400 and not good anyway)

NVIDIA driver version: 43.63

/etc/X11/XF86Config: (relevant parts)
....
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "type1"
Load "speedo"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "v4l"
Load "glx"
EndSection
....
Section "Device"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Driver "nvidia"
BoardName "Gainward"
Option "dpms"
Screen 0
Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "NvAgp" "1"
Option "PageFlip" "true"
Option "DigitalVibrance" "2"
Option "HWCursor" "true"
Option "SWCursor" "false"
EndSection

/etc/modules.conf:
...
alias char-major-195 nvidia
options nvidia NVreb_EnableVia4x=1
options nvidia NVreg_ReqAGPRate=0x4

/etc/lilo.conf
...
image = /boot/kernel2420
label = linux-noacpi
root = /dev/hda7
append = " pci=noacpi pci=biosirq"
...
(do not forget to run lilo after changing lilo.conf)

Good luck.

Yes, I've already given you a detailed description about what to do in a previous post. Unfortunately linux is an OS where a lot of reading and work is required...and this you'll have to achieve yourself.

can you tell me how to detect agpgart in your kernel? I couldn't find a module, but I'm not sure if its inside the kernel, some people told me that the mdk9.1 does not have agpgart in it's kernel, but I would like to know for sure...

I don't know anything about kernels...

thanks in advance

Sorry man but

Yes you have write a lot BUT i repeat you think you have explain well but sorry i hav dont understand how to do that :
add "pci=noacpi" to your lilo.conf append string (and don't forget to rerun lilo afterwards)

you dont have explain more

And finally the most interresest part is

disable kernel-support for agpgart driver (then recompile and install it) and enable NVIDIA's AGP driver

but Reread your post and i say its not a newbie step by step how to and you fly over the topic.

If one person can explain step by step how to disable kernel-support for agpgart driver please please write it for us ....

Thanks again and again

alien9999:
run "dmesg | grep agpgart".
If AGP support is compiled into the kernel then something should show up. If it is compiled as a module, make sure to "modprobe agpgart" before you run the dmesg stuff.

In order to use NVIDIA's AGP driver set NvAGP to "1".

Some other stuff to try:
-disable acpi for pci (append="pci=noacpi")
-disable apic (append="noapic")
-disable both (append="pci=noacpi noapic")

(the "append" entry should go into the /etc/lilo.conf, under the "image" tag of your current kernel - run "man lilo.conf" for more info on that file and remember to run "lilo" after you've changed the lilo.conf)


tsubasa:
Please take a look at this post of yours:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...9&pagenumber=2
I've already answered all of your questions there. For more details you'll have to read the HowTo's and/or man-pages.

Default Hello

"This *is* important. I'd recommend reading about kernel-compiling in the Kernel-HOWTO (checkout the documentation of your distro, should be somewhere in /usr/share/doc/howto...)"

I dont have a lot of Man in this folder ( no kernel man :'( )

In a nutshell: <- Whats a nutshell ? a konsole ?

You need to install the kernel-sources of your kernel, then go into /usr/src/linux, <- I dont have this folder

run "make menuconfig" => a menu appears, there select "Character devices" and *deselect* "AGP Support" and any drivers for it. <- Dont work on my distro, shell say bad command

Then run "make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install" and if everything went well you've got a new kernel "bzImage" sitting in "/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/" - copy it to /boot,
<- The step before dont work .... i think this one connot be work if the step before dont work ....

edit lilo.conf accordignly and reboot. For details refer to the Kernel-HOWTO.<- How I edit lilo.conf accordignly <- ?????
