I have Compaq R3000z with an Athlon 64 3200+, nForce 3 chipset, and an
Nvidia Geforce 4 440 Go. Currently, I am running the i386 version of
6-CURRENT, with the newest Xorg and whatnot. The problem is that when I
try to startx with the binary Nvidia driver installed, I get an error
NVRM: AGP cannot be enabled on this combination of the AMD CPU and OS kernel
NVRM: kernel upgrade recommended.
I tried both Nvidia's AGP and FreeBSD's AGP driver, but neither worked.
When I check the sysctl hw.nvidia.agp.status.status, it says that it is
disabled, regardless of which AGP I choose to use. If anyone has any
insight on what to do to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.
