Description Robert Thomas 2003-09-24 15:36:25 EDT
Description of problem:

The Via Apollo Pro266T (T stands for Tualatin) chipset is unsupported in the
agpgart driver.  When used with an NVidia video card (GeForce 2) driver several
symptoms will appear:

1)  X will hang with 99.9% CPU usage after heavy OpenGL graphics usage (such as
playing Quake 3).  

2)  Another symptom is that the ScreenSaver will also fail to operate.

3)  Video performance degradation.

Hardware Config:

IWILLDVD266-uRN Dual PIII motherboard (2 PIII 1.2 Ghz CPU's)
1 gigabyte DDR memory
Geforce 2 TI - 4X AGP, 256MB Aperture

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
