Does this mean that AGP x8 works in amd64 now?
Is that only on nforce3 cards or also on via kt800?
Post your /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status.
post your dmesg..
Wow I'm getting exitted...
I want a 3400+....

Well, AGP 8x works perfectly on AMD's 8151, but it should also work on VIA chipsets using the amd64.org patch.

Do you have any problems using FX5700 Ultra on AMD64? I was told that the 4499 drivers did not support it or the 5900/5950 boards.

fluoro,
Yea the 5700U would work but it continually froze X, so I went back to a 5600U and it runs great. With the 2.6.1_XXX-gentoo sources AGPGART works and it about doubled my framerate. I have a 5900U that I can't wait for nvidia to realease drivers for - I really want it in the AMD64!!!
