Arrow Re: canīt install nVidia drivers under Mandrake 10.1

I've changed Option "NvAGP" to "3"!

$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes: Supported
SBA: Supported
AGP Rates: 8x 4x
Registers: 0x1f000e1b:0x00000302

$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge: PCI device 1106:3189
Fast Writes: Supported
SBA: Supported
AGP Rates: 8x 4x
Registers: 0x1f000a1b:0x1f000b0a

$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Enabled
AGP Rate: 8x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Enabled

What is Fast Writes? Do I need them? If they are supported, why are they disabled?

The NvAgp option specifies the AGP driver to use.
According to the README file for the nvidia driver, you should see that depending on the value of this option, the AGP driver used will be :
- agpgart
- nvagp
- try nvagp and use agpgart if it doesn't work
(I cannot remember the values, it's in the README anyway)
