Default AGP module

Like the nvidia kernel module. I don't know the name of the module: something like agp or gagp, try these or check inside the /etc/modules.conf
modprobe agp
modprobe gagp

Check it is loaded properly with lsmod.

Thx for the reply. I couldnt find 'agp' or 'gagp' but 'agpgart' .
So I did a 'modprobe agpgart' but still no luck. It failed with the same error message.
By the way, I just install the MDK9.1 again and use the expert mode of the nvidia-installer to rebuild the driver. I still got the same error message.
I wonder if I should give up at this point.

Thanks.

Default blah...

Well... I dump a few things I'm thinking about:
- In your BIOS did you assign an IRQ to VGA?
- Load the agpart and nvidia kernel module and check that you have your card and your host properly detected in /proc/driver/nvidia.

If you could post again: your XF86Config, the log of xfree and the log of the nvidia-installer. Thx. It's best to have a look at the all three at the same time.

Default No IRQ assigned to VGA?

You did say that there is no IRQ assigned to VGA?
Well, enable it, load agpart then nvidia and try again.

I checked the files... the pb seems to be located with the kernel module... if the previous thing still does not work... the idea would be to force the compilation of the kernel module, because on your system it uses a precompiled one...
I'm going to check also if in single user mode under the console, it's normal to have AGP disabled...

Thumbs up It works! Thx!

Thx for your help. It now works!

I believe the problem is the IRQ for PCI VGA. If it's turned off, it fails. If it's on it works. I've tested the driver by playing tuxracer which is so smooth.
So I believe the installation of this driver for mdk9.1 is as simple as turning on IRQ for VGA, running the installer, modprobe'ing agpgart and nvidia and finally having fun with the tuxracer.

Again, thanks so much for your help and patience.

Cool done.

Don't forget you can run a bunch of windows games with transgaming winex(but you have to pay for it). For instance I play Warcraft III perfectly and there are so many games... Moreover, more and more games are natively developped for linux(unreal2K3,2K4, wolfeintein...). We expect a native linux port of Doom III, if M$ does not give too much money to help them forgetting about it.
