nvidia on gentoo issue...
i've been reading for a while, but this is my first post. I'm having an issue with nvdia on my gentoo box.
Basically, I'm getting really poor performance in glxgears and in some of the 3d screensavers. I decided to try and use the NVAGP, and read all about the enabling FastWrites and SideBandAddressing. I'm not sure if it worked, because my main issue is that my /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status still says disabled.
Does anyone know how I can get it to show up in status there so I can see if its actually enabled. Without folding running, and the system mostly at idle, I get about 5500fps in glxgears, on a GeForce 6600GT. That seems pretty low compared to what some other people are getting. I'm thinking that something is not enabled correctly, or something.
Please help as this is very frustrating, and I may use this PC for some video previewing. Thanks!
