Exclamation [177.67+] NVIDIA agp not working

With 177.67 and .78 Nvidia AGP is not working. I preffer it over OSS module, because I get better performance under load.
It worked with 177.13, same configuration.

Attached 2 bug reports - 177.13 (working), 177.68 (broken)

Thank you for your report. I saw another report of this (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=118202) earlier today; I'll take a look.

I tracked this problem down to a recent optimization made in the Linux implementation of os_pci_init_handle(). The attached patch fixes this problem. You can apply it using:
# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.68-pkg0.run \
--apply-patch /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-177.68-2714327.diff.txt
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.68-pkg0-custom.run

55 views! I haven't thought there are so many hardcore Linux users who still run old hardware ... and beta drivers. ;-)

"Old" hardware is subjective, seeing as some manufacturers put together AGP cards from PCI-E only chips. Geforce 7 series and ATI HD 3000 series. I don't think anyone has made a more recent AGP card though so hopefully AGP is finally dying.

@klemi: you need to install the `patch` utility; if you're unsure how to do this, please check with your distributor (or a forum with users knowledgeable about your distribution).

I've just installed the lastest 180.22 and experienced the same problem... "GPU GART" in Xorg.log and halved fps in opengl apps. I'm using 6600GT@AGP. Anybody else had faced this?

Confirmed!
Using nvidia 7600GT @ AGP. It shows PCI bus in settings.
Compositing effects are working, but glxGears shows a huge drop in FPS compared to previous drivers.
