Hi, I dont and haven't used Mandrake in a while so Im not sure how much I can help. You basically have to:

1. Install the ati driver rpm you have. Make sure your version of
XFREE matches with the driver.

2. as root:
cd /usr/src
cp location of patch here /usr/src
patch -p0 <name of patch here
(at this point you should not get errors. If you do you
may have to get new kernel sources)
make menuconfig
(go to ATA/IDE interfaces)
(go down to the agpgart section and enable nforce2 support)
(exit saving changes)
make dep clean
make modules modules_install (im guessing agpgart is a module)
cd /opt/ati/bin
fglrxconfig
//then set everything up
//you're going to want to load an external agpgart when it asks.

3. restart and cross your fingers

4. If you get into X test everything out with the new glxgears in /opt/ati/bin

Goodluck

Is the patch file

http://etudiant.epita.fr:8000/~nonol...rc-patched.tgz ?

What is the diff file for?

I'm sorry about this, I'm very new to this.

I see that

I think that file you have linked is a fix for the ati drivers. I didnt have to use that. Read through this forum to see what it is exactly for. I do know that the nforce-agp.diff is your patch. Hope this helps

I am getting an agp_backend.h error when patching with the diff file.

Can anyone help?

I think you should read a little about making your own custom kernel. The reason is that you need to download some kernel sources and apply the patch to that. Then you need to be able to correctly choose which things you need in your kernel. I have the same MB, I did the following:

Downloaded the 2.4.20 kernel. www.kernel.org
delete the current linux link in /usr/src
create a new one using ln -s (new sources) linux
Applied the ck patches http://members.optusnet.com.au/ckolivas/kernel/
Applied nforce patch.

I didnt get any errors

Good luck

I got the same error. The fix is to edit the agp_backend.h file and add the line
NV_NFORCE_2, right after the line HP_ZX1,.

I am using the 2.4.21 kernel. Will the patch still work? If not, how can I downgrade my kernel or get a suitable patch?

Just out of curiosity:
Can we expect the same development for NVIDIA nforce network drivers? I desperately want them becoming part of the kernel, so that we all will be able to compile them into the 2.5.x kernel series...

Im not sure if it will work. If no one gives you a reply, you may as well try. Just have a boot disk ready Experimenting is the best way to learn.

I am still getting the agp_backend.h error.

Am I supposed to have installed the ati drivers for my graphics card before patching my kernel?
