I've written support for various AGP GART drivers in the Linux kernel.

NVIDIA nForce/nForce2 (Based largely on 2.4 patches from NVIDIA).
knows somebody something about these patches and where they are available?

Default lm_sensors and nForce2

So far, Jens
Glad to hear it works for you.

No such luck on Asus A7N8X.

But it's good to hear that there's an i2c-nforce2 in the cvs tree, so one of these days... I also noticed that the mid-April driver release supports SPDIF under Linux.

Onward to the APIC

Since the nForce2 system isn't SMP, it doesn't have the normal MPS table. Then the IO-APIC would be based upon what's in the ACPI table. ACPI is maintained by @intel.com hmm...It would be nice to get 24 interrupts in Linux (APIC works fine under WinXP)

Still waiting on those new nforce drivers so that I can patch agpgart...

in 2.4.21-rc1 is some generic apic (or was it coming with the current acpi patches?) stuff. it seems to work, but breaks the sound (alsa and nvidia)...

disabling the apic locks the system upon installing the sound-modules though.

anyway have to look into that a bit further. the locking could be a mistake of mine during install

2.4.21-rc1's ACPI is from 2001. I had patched to the 20030328 release and the IO-APIC is detected. What is broken is the PCI IRQ routing for IRQ's higher than 16. 1-15 are fine. Giving the option pci=noacpi gets the new ACPI to work fine, but it's goes back to having just 15 interrupts, so it's back to the XT-PIC. I haven't tried the 2003042x release. I believe 2.4.21-rc1-ac2 (and ac3) have the latest ACPI patch, but I've not tried this either.

2.4.21-rc1-ac3 got the ACPI merge. -ac2 is still using the old ACPI.

It is my guess (and it is just that) that the AGPgart drivers will be available roughly at the same time as the nForce3 Pro chipset, which as I understand it is single cpu chipset for the AMD Opteron that has an AGP slot and is aimed at the workstation market. Since Windows doesn't yet have a 64-bit operating system that will fly on an Opteron, Linux is the only 64-bit game in town. Thus in order for nVidia to be able to sell this chipset to motherboard manufacturers, there will most likely have to be AGPgart support by that time.

Default Could we get a diff?

Andy,

You've said you sent the agpgart maintainer a patch, could we please get a diff against any version of the source tree so we can start playing with it?

Thanks

Hi highrez,

I just want to help you whith 2 little tings :

- first there is a 2.5 agppatch at this adress :
http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/cruft/agpgart-bits.diff

- secondary there is a little hack to this patch made by me to come back to kernel 2.4 ( in attachment)

You will test it with this :
http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/cruft/testgart.c
(cc testgart.c ; ./a.out)

Before testing with xfree if it's work you can go on with xfree, but it doesn't seems to work with Ati proprietary drivers under Xfree 4.3 (doesn't hang up the kernel but hang up the display) . I have radeon 9700 pro so I can't test with xfree drivers.
