Default Re: system freezes, geforce 7800, latest drivers

Here it is. When I run glxinfo, I can hear the card's fan spin harder or something.

Thanks. If you set NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf (and restart X), does that have any impact?

Would that be for the Device section?

I also don't have the nvidia-agp.ko or any of the backend chipset drivers listed here.
lspci shows me this line:
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] AMD-760 MP [IGD4-2P] AGP Bridge

But there's no driver that says it's for the 760, just the 761 and 762. How should I configure my kernel?

I put that option in the device section, rebooted my machine, and passed agp=no to the kernel. It seems to work. Well, glxgears runs now without aborting, and without messing up anything else. Doom 3 still says it can't initialize OpenGL, though. Should I try any other kernel configurations though, for better performance or anything? Maybe I should try that driver for the 761.
