Default LINUX 2.4.20 SIS648 GF4200 -> doesn't work


I'm trying to activate SIS648 AGP8X with a GF4200Ti graphics card. Because with Linux 2.4.18 it doesn't work I tried 2.4.20 but this will not work also.

My system

Suse Linux 8.0
Linux Kernel 2.4.20
GF4 Ti4200 128MB

Without AGP (Option: "NvAGP" "0") it works... with AGP the screen freezes, with or without kernel AGP. (using NV AGP support instead).

Has someone the same problem?

If you are using 1.0.3123 then use AGPGART with the following lines in your /etc/modules.conf file.

alias char-major-175 agpgart
options agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1

NvAGP option should be 2 in the XF86Config file.

this worked fine for me using a GForce MX 440 8X card on the SiS648 chipset using a P4S8X mobo.

Didn't get 8X though, only got 4X.

If you use 1.0.4194 then it works fine and even shows you the AGP3 rates (again no 8X with this chip :-() but there are a few render issues in 2D that make startup REALLY slow.

BTW: This version seems to work fine with NVIDIA OR AGPGAT
