Default AGP is disabled

Hi,

I am having problems getting AGP enabled. I have attached my xfree log and xf86config files. I have an nvidia GeForce FX 5700 and my motherboard is a MSI K8T Neo-FIS2R with a AMD 64 3200+.

Code:
uname -a
Linux amd64 2.6.5-gentoo-r1 #1 Sat May 1 12:10:46 GMT 2004 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
Code:
/proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes:     Supported
SBA:             Supported
AGP Rates:       8x 4x
Registers:       0x1f000e1b:0x00000000
Code:
/proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge:     PCI device 1106:3188 (VIA Technologies, Inc.)
Fast Writes:     Supported
SBA:             Supported
AGP Rates:       8x 4x
Registers:       0x1f000a1b:0x00000000
Code:
/proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status:          Disabled
Code:
/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model:           GeForce FX 5700
IRQ:             11
Video BIOS:      04.36.20.21.00
Card Type:       AGP
Code:
/proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module  1.0-5336  Wed Jan 14 18:29:26 PST 2004
GCC version:  gcc version 3.3.2 20031218 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.2-r5, propolice-3.3-7)
Any ideas why AGP is disabled?

I'm not sure if agpgart supports your via chipset in 32bit mode (yet). For sure the agp support built into the driver doesn't support it.

On some systems, users don't have permissions to access /proc

I think I have arranged something wrong in kernel or XF86Config-4? I do carry out as a root

I mean file permissions on /proc those have nothing to do with the nvidia drivers.

@Michel-pl: /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status is not an executable file, you'll need to use something like cat to access its contents.

@ozster123: You can try building AGP support into the kernel, not as a module. Skip the XF86Config AGP setting as well. Does that work for you?

You have to use 'cat' to list the contents of those files.

eg:

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status

Then you will see it's output.

Default Re: AGP is disabled

In kernel 2.6.5 and newer I have had much more success with agpgart than with the nvidia agp driver. The best plan is to build agpgart as a module for the kernel, then experiment with both. I see much better results when I have agpgart and intel_agp loaded before starting X (which loads the 'nvidia' kernel module). Oddly, the 'agp disabled' problem shows up if I load the nvidia kernel module before starting x, or if I request nvagp via the X config option NvAGP.

This is a recent change for my system... it definitely has to do with the kernel version.

That's exactly my experience. I ended up configuring AGP in-kernel and ditching NvAGP altogether and I have never looked back. ;-)

My Debian (Mandrake and RedHat too) has stoped when I work in this system. Mouse has stop, keyboard has stop. How can I do it?

I can't do XF86Config-4

Please help me.
