can't get AGP to work.
have an Nvidia 6600GT with FBSD 6.0 Generic Kernel with a 6600 and I can't get it wot work with AGP. It keep saying it's using the PCI bus and not AGP.
I did sysctl hw.nvidia I get this:
hw.nvidia.agp.card.rates: 8x 4x
hw.nvidia.agp.status.driver: n/a (unused)
hw.nvidia.agp.status.rate: n/a (disabled)
hw.nvidia.agp.status.fw: n/a (disabled)
hw.nvidia.agp.status.sba: n/a (disabled)
hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA FreeBSD x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-8178 Wed Dec 14 17:04:30 PST 2005
hw.nvidia.cards.0.model: GeForce 6600
I also did the following
In "/boot/loader.conf", put the following....
In /boot/device.hints put this...
Under the "server flags" section of your xorg.conf file put this..
Option "NvAGP" "1"
However when I use nvidia-settings from KDE it still sayd PCI Bus. Thanks for your help...
When I installed the Nvidia port I didn't slect to use FreeBSD AGP, is that the issue. I have CVSuped and I am running the newest driver by Nvidia (1.0-8178). This is a fresh install so I don't have any previous versions running.
Any help is appreciated, I have been banging my head against the wall for a couple of days on this. .

Re: can't get AGP to work.
Which AGP (Nvidia or FreeBSD) driver are you trying to use? The agp_load line in loader.conf will have it load the FreeBSD AGP driver while the NvAGP line you have tells X to only attempt to use the Nvidia AGP driver.
To use the Nvidia AGP driver on a FreeBSD system, I would leave what you have except for removing the line from loader.conf. See if that helps.
