|Ok, thanks for the info. Did not know that this option is available for all drivers. Will try it when I am back home this weekend and let you know if it improves the situation.
Btw, can’t find README.dri on my system here. At least ‘locate’ doesn’t find it at all. Where is this README located? I’ve also looked into XF86Config-4(5) and the option wasn’t mentioned there either.
Finally I found this article which confirms that this option is available for the radeon driver.
I also saw in some usenet posts, that some people get an appropriate AGP mode kernel message when loading agpgart and the drm module, but that is not shown on my system (VIA KT266A, Radeon 7500). Anyway I will try tomorrow…
bye & thanks again.
