NvAGP option can be specified in the XF86Config-4 file in the Section "Device". You add 'Option "NvAGP" "0"' if you want to disable AGP, "1" if you want nvida's driver for AGP, "2" for agpart, "3" is automatic (3 is default).
Concerning apic, edit /etc/lilo.conf
"append" - line to append=" noapic "

I did test that with :
-apic on
-acpi on too
-and Option "NvAGP" "0"
it works fine
but with the same with Option "NvAGP" "1"
It crash(the seen freeze)!

I will test Option "NvAGP" "2" soon

I have a mdk 9.1 on kernel 2.4.21-18mm-mdk(from plf)

Else do you know when will the new drivers produced ???? (witch work with Option "NvAGP" "3&2&1")

I hope one day the will appear under GPL open licence, to be directly plugable in the kernel and be tested before they appear to be downloaded with new kernel!

Dual Pentium III 1.13G/133 Mhz
1 gigabyte DDR
WinFast GeForce2/TI

Motherboard = IWILL DVD266-uRN
Via Apollo Pro266 NorthBridge

Suse 8.2 SMP Kernel

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run

I have two symptoms:

Symptom 1
o Will randomly lock up while using Mozilla or
Pan NewsReader.
o I can telnet into my workstation and X will
consuming one of the CPU's @ 99.99 %.

Symptom 2

o After leaving my workstation on for 12 hours,
it locks hard, I cannot telnet and the keyboard
is unresponsive.

I've read somewhere that downgrading to 3123 have helped some people. Is this the case?

Thanks,

Byte

witch distro are you using ????

It can help you :
I did compile my kernel(the mdk9.1 originals did not take care of my raid) and I dl the 2.4.21mm-mdk one from the plf group I think.

If you compile it with the kdb debugger it will crash and you cannot compile the nvidia drv
without the kdb it works fine on my computer.

I did not reboot until I install my nvidia drivers I hope not having troubles at the next reboot!

Angry Screen Freezes - RH 9.0

I have similar problems but I believe it relates to the MOBO that I am using, the GA-7VTXE+. I notice that normally, if I first boot to Windows and leave it there for a while (warming the card up I guess) and then boot to RH 9, then the problem USUALLY does not happen (I.e., locks up, cursor still moves). However, if I start from a cold machine and boot directly to RH 9, then a lock up always seems to occur, sometime before the login screen to just after I login.

I did have NvAGP "1" and that seemed to make some difference but in the end I had to go back to the nv driver. I'm not sure if it have to do with the drive strength or the fact it is an ASUS V7100 Pure card GF2 MX 400.

Any ideas?

I switched back to RedHat 9.0 and the problem is gone. I dont know what the difference is between Suse and RedHat. I just know that RedHat works.

Default try AGP 2x in bios

I have been trying for months to get the problem of freezing randomly sorted out.
On my system the problem appears to be that the voltages to the motherboard are too low (the power supply does not appear to be totally adequate) which results in the graphics card not being able to run at full power. When I dropped the AGP to 2x in the bios the problem seems to have gone away at least no hangs for the last 4 h when it was hanging every 2 to 10 min). Interestingly switching the AGP off in the config file didn't work. This could be because SUSE has it compiled in and I was too lazy to recompile (my system would require several other non-linux-kernel modules to be recompiled as well).

I recently got an old TNT2 working in one linux box, so I took the (even older) PCI TNT out and put it in my server (just so it's fast enough to watch the odd movie on....).
Now X locks up sporadically on the server..... Quite frustrating really. Thankfully the server keeps operating perfectly (web server, email, samba, internet routing is all fine). But slower since X is sucking up CPU ( I have to ssh in and kill X).

So far from the thread I have seen it might help to fiddle with NVAGP settings (Not applicable to a PCI tnt), or disable AGPGART (something that *may* help me), or turn renderaccel off.

Does anyone have a definitive cause? Does Renderaccell make much difference in speed? (I really need Xv extensions working to make my video watchable).

I'll try these couple of things when I get home, and see what happens...

if you want to see divx or movie as this you does not need Xv etention, mplayer work fine with no acceleration 3d (and extention of X) but need a powerfull pross (> 800Mhz in case of no render accel)

I don't know, if I use the Xshm display mode it's pretty darn slow full screen. I guess I could use the framebuffer interfaces, but I'd prefer to be able to use X so I can do other stuff at the same time if I want. Really it just shouldn't lock up, and that's what I really want to solve.
The machine has a 1000 MHz celeron, and it really can't do fullscreen without Xv.

a 1000Mhz celeron with a bus at 66 Mhz ???
if yes the problems could come from this...
