Let's keep the discussion on the Linux level shall we?

Mine's an agpgart issue. ATI needs to release a driver that doesn't necessarily require an AGP gart, or nVidia needs to release an agpgart for their nForce...one of the two...

ROFLMAO... well that has nothing to do with ati....

All current ati cards and nvidia cards NEED agpgart (where nvidia has its own pcigart for emulation) but practically its not obsurd to say that you need an agp driver to use an agp graphics driver... so your problem is really with your motherboard vendor, nvidia... not ati...

No, the nVidia drivers will work without an AGP gart. All AGP slots can run in a legacy PCI mode. It's slow, but it will work.

nvidia's "Legacy pci mode" is actually a using the pci bus to emulate an agp bus... it does bizarre crap with mtrrs to simulate agpmemory and stuff...

This is what ati needs...

now it is actually feasible that they clean up and use the open source pci gart... but thats a different story...


But your right, an nvidia card CAN run without agp drivers... because it has its own

The ATI drivers also have their own gart. It just doesn't work with an nForce2, while nVidia's does.

On a side note, one little bit of wierdness is that when I disable AGP8x in the BIOS with the GeForce4, it disables AGP4x in Linux.
