Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212857
NForce-2: no agpgart
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:29:15 EST
Description of problem:
NForce-2: in /var/log/messages the usual message
'Detected NVIDIA nForce2 chipset'
is missing and the X-Server complains about missing agpgart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
AGP not configured, X-Server can not use DRI => applications like
googleearth are dog-slow ...
re-compiling the kernel with the shipped kernel-2.6.18-i686.config
fixes the problem.
Please attach the output of dmesg after booting the FC6 kernel.
Also the /var/log/Xorg.0.log

output of dmesg of the re-compiled kernel

/var/log/messages of the original kernel
Created attachment 139897 [details]
Xorg.log of the re-compiled kernel, the original log with the error message I don't have anymore
Today I installed FC6 on another machine, which has pretty much the same HW:
same MoBo, same CPU, same Memory, but different HD and graphics: the first where
the error occured has a Radeon 9200 graphics card. The machine I installed today
has a Matrox G550 graphics card. Strange enough on the second machine everything
worked correct right out of the box:
agpgart: Found an AGP 2.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 1x mode
This is very confusing.
by the way: the MoBo is an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe.
BIOS settings of both machines are identical.
ah, I think this is the 'installer installs a 586 kernel by default' bug.
Let me know if it works when you install a 686 kernel.
