Default I think it will work for you phorem

phorem from your post, you have the "too many northbridges" error. that was fixed inbetween 2.6.0-test11 and 2.6.0 final.... there also was some amd64 sched stuff that you might need in the new version... so are you sure you have the latest?

oh and I was using 4499 version nvidia... I couldnt get 4620 to compile /* complains about the arch being 64 not 32 , I didnt pursue it more than that */.

I really didnt do anything special. I just seemed to work, to my suprise.

1.0-4620 and the new 1.0-5238 are both IA32. Neither will help those of us running AMD64 Linux, it's 1.0-4499 for now, till NV kicks out a new AMD64 build.

Also, using a K8 and an Nvidia card does not mean you're using the Nvidia 64bit driver, mentioned in the thread title.

1.0-4499 appears to be badly broken, though. Parts of NV's AGP handling, and possibly some of their 2D/3D accel is not working. The line that shows it's happening:

0: NVRM: AGPGART: unable to retrieve symbol table

I get that repeated many, many times, in my log. After speaking with Dave Jones and some others, I got AGPGART working fine. The Nvidia driver, however, is still broken. Even though AGPGART is working and the driver reports AGPGART is enabled and working, it's not really. My glxgears scores in PCI mode and in this 'new' AGP mode are *identical*. Nvidia's stuff is reporting AGP is working, but it isn't.

Default 64-bit works, but no AGP

I'm running SuSE 9.0 with (SuSE) kernel 2.4.21-178-smp on a Tyan Thunder K8W with 2 Opteron 248s and a GeForce4 4600. I installed the 4499 driver, and it works (glxgears 2000+), but 2D screen refreshes are dead slow and it looks like the driver is not using AGP.

For whatever reason, this SuSE kernel insists on compiling AGP into the kernel (it's not available as a module). If I dmesg, I see:

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 3302M
agpgart: Detected AMD 8151 chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 128M @ 0xf0000000

However, if I cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status, I get

Status: Disabled

This is with NvAGP "2" (I can't try the Nvidia AGP since AGPGART is compiled into the kernel). Any help getting the nvidia driver to recognize AGPGART would be appreciated.
