2.4.21-rc1-ac3 has the new 20030424 ACPI. My guess is you probably had IO-APIC enabled and this new ACPI does see it and enable it. The problem is then that the PCI IRQ routing has issues. Issuing pci=noacpi should allow you to get your PCI devices which were assigned IRQ's about 15 to work...it essentially goes back to XT-PIC instead of APIC.

Hi Kiamu,

Yes there is no problem with fglrx drivers and xfree 4.3, you just need to take an fglrx 4.3 version here :

http://www.schneider-digital.de/html/download_ati.html

And to take one of the fglrx patch here :

http://www.epitech.net/~nonolk

And to replace your build_mod directory.

That's all

Hi there!

First to say big thanks for you agp patch, its working fine here

I just have some questions:

I am using the agpgart patch to the kernel, the ATI-Drivers 2.9.08 from schneider-digital and xfree 4.3, without any problems with my ATI 9700 Pro on the A7N8X Deluxe Board, even with AGP 8x in Bios activated. So why should i need the patch for the fglrx source? (Btw. , this patch is NOT for the new 2.9.12 driver, is it?).
Is that needed to really use the AGP 8x mode? And, how can i check in which mode my card is running under x?

Thx 4 your help,
Jiriki

In your /usr/X11R6/bin, there should be some firecontrol.qt*.gcc*.bz2 Depending on what you use, you can use bzip2 and decompress one of them and run it. It will tell you a bunch of stuff including AGP mode. I'm at AGP 4x, SBA, FW (AGP v2.0)

I had problems with the gcc3.2 version...it seg faults. The qt2.gcc2.96 version works fine for me.

ok,

finally! X running and around 5600 FPS in glxgears are not the worst i guess

but: there still seem to be issues with the irq routing. if i use sound and my dialin (pppoe) both freeze.
sound or pppoe is no problem. anyone an idea?

update:
the modules are loading nicely together. only using both at the same time will hang up sound and pppoe... only to be cured by a reboot :/


edit:
included update and corrected fps rates due to typo in XF86Config (monitor section)

Hi Radea,

Not for the moment, because I haven't a lot of time to do it, and because I have 2 problem, the main problem is, that I don't know from where it comes, and the second is that I don't have any sample of this board so I can't look all I need. But I asked Epox to know where their board are different from the other nforce/2 board, I'm waiting a response. And I will ask Andy, maybe he have one idea. If I have any response which can help me to improve this patch, I will post it.

Thank's for your comprehension.

Well I am having absolutely no luck getting anything to work.

I'm running a Epox 8RDA+ and a Radeon 9700. I can get X working without DRI (thankfully) but all my attempts to get AGP and DRI working have failed, miserably.

I'm running the 2.4.21-rc2 kernel, on a Debian Stable install. (Fresh of as an hour ago). The changelog for the patch to 2.4.21-rc2 says it has support for "nforce" AGPGART, but it doesn't seem to work: Excerpt from demsg | grep agp

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: unsupported bridge
agpgart: no supported devices found.

I've tried nonolks patches, and various fglrx versions, none work at all, (and yes, I know nonolks patch has problems with my motherboard, but it was worth a try).

I either get a error regarding kernel module versions don't match or AGP cannot be found.

Any help would be appreciated, as I'm nearing the end of my patience.

Update:

I managed to miss the diff file in nonolks webspace, tried that, and now I have AGP and X starts, but KDE was totally wasted (panel was missing in some points) and then when I tried to open a xterm and run glxinfo, system locked hard .

Hi,

did you use the correct version of the ati fglrx driver? Debian (woody,stable) comes with XFree86 4.1.x.

I had these lock-ups when I tried the the nonolk-patch for the fglrx.o-kernel module sources. So don't use them for XFree 4.1.x (you don't need to patch them anyway). Just apply the agpgart kernel-patch. Ignore the warnings and be sure to load agpgart.o before fglrx.o.
