I've a Dell 5150 laptop, and this site is the best for my mobile graphics card.
I'm running on Gentoo Linux 2.6.11-r9 and i have this settings:
fuzzo@Dell5150 / $ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/registry VideoMemoryTypeOverride: 1 EnableVia4x: 0 EnableALiAGP: 0 NvAGP: 1 ReqAGPRate: 7 EnableAGPSBA: 0 EnableAGPFW: 0 SoftEDIDs: 1 Mobile: 4294967295 ResmanDebugLevel: 4294967295 FlatPanelMode: 0 DevicesConnected: 0 VideoEnhancement: 0 RmLogonRC: 1 ModifyDeviceFiles: 1 DeviceFileUID: 0 DeviceFileGID: 0 DeviceFileMode: 438This is the nvidia module parameter now active...
Look at my system capabilities:

fuzzo@Dell5150 / $ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status Status: Enabled Driver: NVIDIA AGP Rate: 4x Fast Writes: Disabled SBA: DisabledThis says that i use NVIDIA AGP driver (instead of kernel's AGPGART) with 4x speed, but without FW & SBA
I tried to load module with:
NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1to enable both features, but X server hangs and my display went "unreadable"
How i can activate FW and SBA without problems with X?
