Removing modules


Hi

I have two simple questions:

1. How do I remove modules in SuSE 10.0 (kernel 2.6.13-15.7)? I wish to turn off the following modules (or rather not make them start at all!):

agpgart
fglrx
intel_agp

I need to do this to make my ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 128M graphics card work.

2. What fps should I have when runnning glxgears using this card?

Thanks for any help

Using `modprobe -r agpgart fglrx intel_agp` should do what you want (you may have to change the order or some other modules as well) until you reboot the system.

To stop them loading on a reboot try grepping your startup scripts for the modprobe command or for those module names. Have a look in /etc/modules.conf in case there are references to them there...

You could just recompile your kernel and remove support for agp - are you sure you don't need it?

I don't have an ATI card, but the nVidia module prefers to use its own agpgart module. Perhaps this ATI driver is the same?
