Default 7174;2.6.12-rc2: can't get NvAGP to load

I startx without nvidia or agpgart loaded. Checked with lsmod.

Xorg.0.log:

........................
(II) NVIDIA X Driver 1.0-7174 Tue Mar 22 06:48:37 PST 2005
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all NVIDIA GPUs
.....................
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NvAGP" "1"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "RenderAccel" "0"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Use of NVIDIA internal AGP requested
.............

yet lsmod shows:

nvidia 3921276 12
agpgart 33872 1 nvidia

Does the nvidia driver use agpgart even if it's not loaded?

It uses the agpgart kernel module, yes. It still continues to use nvidia's internal AGP driver, though. (You can verify by looking at /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status.)

You'll notice that it doesn't load the via_agp module (or whatever driver your motherboard's AGP chipset would require -- mine uses via_agp), just agpgart.

Ok, maybe.

/proc/driver/nvidia has versions and cards/0. No agp.

OTOH, intel_agp is not loaded.

More disappointingly, glxgears has exactly the same fps!
