Default Asus v9180/RH73 locks

Hello everyone.

Trying to get my graphics adapter working under RH73.
My config is:
Configuration:

Asus A7V8X MB
CPU : Atholon 2400 ( 2000Mhz)
Graphics adapter: Asus GeForce 4 mx 440 8x v9180TD
Chipset North: VIA KT400
South: VIA VT8235


Linux RedHat 7.3
Kernel 2.4.18-3


I download 4190 drivers for my CPU type based on NVchooser output. I downloaded source and compiled. It was fast. I can see nvidia module loaded.
When I startx the screen is full of garbage chars and computer locks up. See more debug stuff below. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Well you aren't using 4190, because 4190 doesn't exist.

If you're using 4191, then you're OK as far as that goes. Probably.

The problem you're seeing is that the Via KT400 board is newer than your kernel's AGP driver (since you use RH 7.3, this is even more likely). Try upgrading kernels, or try using Option "NvAgp" "1" in your XF86Config-4 file. If that still doesn't work, then you're going to have to disable AGP with Option "NvAgp" "0" instead.

Thanks. It is 4191.

It worked with Option "NVAgp" "0".


I guess I'll wait till there is a kernel that supports VIA KT400 chipset.

Thanks
