AGP Bridge

Hello again,

anyone know how to get AGPGART to see the agp bridge on a :

Asus A7n266-c mother board?
it's an nVidia nForce chipset

I have biult in to the kernel all the agp stuff but on boot I get

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 816M
agpgart: unsupported bridge
agpgart: no supported devices found.

thanks for any help

I think you'll need to install the nvidia driver for this board...and the bad news is you don't want agpgart compiled into the kernel but as a module incase it conflicts with the nvidia driver.

Another possibility is to try passing the option agp_try_unsupported=1 during module loading. Your /etc/modules.conf will look something like:


alias char-major-10-175 agpgart

options agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1


Be sure to run depmod -a after modifying modules.conf.

you can also experiment with the options as root before changing modules.conf:

# modprobe -v agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1

Good luck,
