kernel agpgart issue


When my 2.4.29 kernel boots AGPgart works but I am trying to compile it in my 2.6.11.8 kernel but I cannot enable the option any ideas? This is what it looks like

hi there,

you need to select the correct video driver - according to your card specifications...
i advice also put them as modules in the kernel.
slackware - i.e. hotplug and rc.modules - will load everything that you need.

Even with the nforce selected it still doesn't become available, is it something I am missing? I use an x-micro gforce 5600, there is no gforce selection so I assume that you are suppossed to use the NVIDIA nforce?

hi there,

why are you compiling the intel i865 support? this has nothing to do with your card..
i will repeat what i said before.. if you don't find exact what you have in the kernel, compile as module and let hotplug/rc.modules find for you.
if still does not work, then you need some third part driver - ex. NVIDIA..

regards
